In today’s fast-paced software development world, relying solely on automated testing to validate that your application works as intended before launch can be tempting. However, manual testing still provides unique and essential benefits that automation cannot match. As an expert in quality assurance and testing, Selectiva recognizes the ongoing importance of manual testing and provides specialized manual testing services to help clients launch confidently.

Manual testing allows for an in-depth, nuanced exploration of an application that automated scripts cannot achieve. By leveraging human insight, knowledge, and adaptability, manual testers can evaluate whether the software works and works well. At Selectiva, our manual testers go beyond functional validation to provide meaningful feedback that improves product quality and user experience.

In this blog, we’ll explore the key benefits of manual testing and how Selectiva’s expertise helps clients maximize impact and mitigate risks at launch. Let’s dive in!

What is Manual Testing?

Manual testing is a software testing method where test cases are executed manually by a human tester without using any automated tools. In manual testing, testers manually execute test cases step-by-step to uncover bugs and issues in the software application under test. 

Unlike automated testing, where test scripts run automatically, manual testing relies entirely on human testers to manually test an application’s functionality and user interface. Testers must follow pre-defined test cases and test data to validate that the application functions as expected.

The key difference between manual and automated testing is that manual testing is performed manually, while automated testing uses automation tools and scripts to execute test cases. Both manual and automated testing complement each other in the testing process. While automated testing is faster for regression testing, manual testing is more suitable for exploratory and usability testing.

Benefits of Manual Testing

Manual testing provides critical benefits that automated testing alone cannot deliver. Human testers have unique abilities to find bugs and issues that automated tests will miss. Some key benefits of manual testing include:

Finds bugs automated testing will miss

While automated tests follow predefined scripts, human testers can test more intelligently. They understand context and can test edge cases in ways automation tools cannot. This allows them to find bugs automated testing would overlook.

Tests complex scenarios

Some test cases are too complex for automation tools. However, human testers can handle intricate test cases and scenarios that involve many variables and dependencies. Manual testing is ideal for testing highly complex systems and processes.

Tests exploratory areas

Automated scripts can only test what they are programmed to test. However, human testers can explore and improve test areas that are not considered when creating automation scripts. This exploratory testing allows new issues to be discovered.

Allows for human observation skills—Humans notice many details machines miss. Testers can observe how the system visually looks and behaves and spot irregularities that automated testing would not detect. They provide a subjective human perspective to complement automated testing.

Manual testing harnesses human critical thinking, intuition, creativity, and insight to discover bugs and flaws that automated testing alone could miss. It fills in the gaps and strengthens the overall testing process.
