Get All Your Hands On Tools
What are the advantages or benefits of using Hands On Tools?
There are many benefits that can be gained by using tools to support testing.
They are: Reduction of repetitive work: Repetitive work is very boring if it is done manually.
- Greater consistency and repeat-ability: First of all people have tendency to do the same task in a slightly different way even when they think they are repeating something exactly. A tool will exactly reproduce what it did before, so each time it is run the result is consistent.
- Objective assessment: If a person calculates a value from the software or incident reports, by mistake they may omit something. Or, their own one-sided preconceived judgments or convictions may lead them to interpret that data incorrectly. Furthermore using a tool means that subjective preconceived notion is removed and the assessment is more repeatable and consistently calculated. Examples include assessing the cyclomatic complexity or nesting levels of a component (which can be done by a static analysis tool), coverage (coverage measurement tool), system behavior (monitoring tools) and incident statistics (test management tool).
You will be able to handle emergencies effectively; there are various home improvement tasks that need to be fixed urgently. When you have your own tools in your tools store, you will be able to easily fix the urgent situation. Without, undergoing any kind of tribulation when trying to find the right tool for that particular task. Furthermore this is beneficial because as a homeowner, you will be able to reduce the possible inconveniences that might arise should such a situation is not fixed immediately. The other benefit is that you will be able to save a substantial amount of money. In most cases, home improvement tasks are usually inevitable and are fixed without necessarily planning for them.
- Ease of access to information about tests or testing: Information presented visually is much easier for the human mind to understand and interpret. For example, a chart or graph is a better way to show information than a long list of numbers – this is why hands on tools charts and graphs in spreadsheets are so useful. Special purpose tools give these features directly for the information they process. Examples include statistics and graphs about test progress (test execution or test management tool). In addition incident rates (incident management or test management tool) and performance (performance testing tool).
