À travers nightwatch et de nombreux autres framework il est possible de jouer les tests via des solutions externes (EX : BrowserStack, SauceLabs). Cela offre de nombreuses combinaisons navigateurs/OS et permet de jouer les tests sur mobile sans effort supplémentaire. De plus, cela retire l’entretien des OS, navigateurs, VMs sur lesquels sont joués les tests.
In closed loop control, the control action from the controller is dependent on the process output. In the case of the boiler analogy this would include a thermostat to monitor the building temperature, and thereby feed back a signal to ensure the controller maintains the building at the temperature set on the thermostat. A closed loop controller therefore has a feedback loop which ensures the controller exerts a control action to give a process output the same as the "Reference input" or "set point". For this reason, closed loop controllers are also called feedback controllers.[5]
Eléments essentiels de votre politique de qualité, les automates de tests permettent la robotisation de vos cas de tests. Ils sont notamment très utiles pour les tests de non régression qui doivent être répétés à chaque nouvelle version d’un logiciel. Quels sont les principaux automates disponibles sur le marché ? Quels sont leurs points forts ? Tour d’horizon. 
The governor could not actually hold a set speed; the engine would assume a new constant speed in response to load changes. The governor was able to handle smaller variations such as those caused by fluctuating heat load to the boiler. Also, there was a tendency for oscillation whenever there was a speed change. As a consequence, engines equipped with this governor were not suitable for operations requiring constant speed, such as cotton spinning.[16]
Dans le chapitre « Genèse des recherches en indexation automatique »  : […] Plusieurs facteurs ont incité les chercheurs en informatique documentaire à tenter de concurrencer l'indexation humaine. D'abord, les contraintes et les insuffisances inhérentes à celle-ci : elle est coûteuse (il faut entre un quart d'heure et une heure pour indexer un document) ; elle est tributaire de la subjectivité de l'indexeur (deux analystes […] Lire la suite☛ http://www.universalis.fr/encyclopedie/indexation/#i_2513
Perhaps the most cited advantage of automation in industry is that it is associated with faster production and cheaper labor costs. Another benefit could be that it replaces hard, physical, or monotonous work.[42] Additionally, tasks that take place in hazardous environments or that are otherwise beyond human capabilities can be done by machines, as machines can operate even under extreme temperatures or in atmospheres that are radioactive or toxic. They can also be maintained with simple quality checks. However, at the time being, not all tasks can be automated, and some tasks are more expensive to automate than others. Initial costs of installing the machinery in factory settings are high, and failure to maintain a system could result in the loss of the product itself. Moreover, some studies seem to indicate that industrial automation could impose ill effects beyond operational concerns, including worker displacement due to systemic loss of employment and compounded environmental damage; however, these findings are both convoluted and controversial in nature, and could potentially be circumvented.[43]
Business process automation (BPA) is the technology-enabled automation of complex[73] business processes. It can help to streamline a business for simplicity, achieve digital transformation, increase service quality, improve service delivery or contain costs. BPA consists of integrating applications, restructuring labor resources and using software applications throughout the organization. Robotic process automation is an emerging field within BPA and uses artificial intelligence. BPAs can be implemented in a number of business areas including marketing,[74] sales[75] and workflow.[76]

27. HITEMA – Groupama Gan Vie L’automatisation des tests fonctionnels SIMON Emeline 1 Annexe 2 : Exemple de suivi d’avancement format Tableau sur le logiciel TCS WEB, Groupama Gan Vie. Sur cet exemple, le suivi d’avancement est organisé sur un cahier de recette comprenant plusieurs onglets (chacun représentant un thème). On peut ainsi suivre le détail du nombre de cas de tests sur chaque domaine, puis le pourcentage.


L’automatisation ne rend pas forcément le test logiciel plus rapide, plus fiable ou moins onéreux. Les coûts initiaux liés à la configuration et aux outils d’automatisation pouvant être élevés, l’automatisation des tests n’est profitable que si les coûts à long terme compensent ces dépenses initiales. En outre, les outils et méthodologies d’automatisation ne possèdent pas tous les mêmes caractéristiques, fonctionnalités et capacités, et chaque projet peut répondre à des exigences différentes, ce qui a des répercussions sur les coûts et les bénéfices.
I’ve used other automation tools besides VBA. Ubot and iMacros are both excellent, and powerful programs (their own programming languages, really). In some respects they’re easier, and for 99% of web automation tasksg, you really can’t go wrong with either. But I got to where I only used VBA because my programming was getting into Windows API’s and command line calls (Visual Basic is tightly integrated with Windows), plus I often found myself using Excel alongside these programs anyway. I discovered there’s almost nothing VBA can’t do with automating Windows and Internet Explorer (even making IE appear as a different browser), and it seemed to me investing time learning Microsoft’s Visual Basic programming language just made more sense.
Automatiser les test d’intégration et les tests de bout en bout implique, pour la viabilité du système en production, que les déploiements soient au maximum automatisés – on parle alors de déploiement continu. Les procédures de déploiement doivent être reproductibles, et contenir le moins de sources d’erreurs possible – intervention manuelle notamment – car elles seront potentiellement jouées un grand nombre de fois.

I used Firebug to find the ID of the search button (magnifying glass) on the page, then used .getElementById again to grab it, and the .Click method to click it. Alternatively, we could have submitted the search box form like this instead objIE.document.getElementById("search_form_homepage").Submit. Actually, there’s a simpler method still that would allow us to skip the previous 3 steps altogether. Can you see it? Hint: take a look at the url we ended up with… https://duckduckgo.com/?q=auto+parts+in+Houston+TX. Got it? If you still don’t see it, and you don’t think you’ll be able to sleep tonight, email me 🙂
