Model for Evaluation and Cost Estimations of the Automated Testing Architecture

In the automated testing, finding an optimal architecture of the scripts and level of structuring to reusable objects from an economic point of view could become a challenging task. The optimality of the architecture of automated test scripts is context dependent and many factors are playing role in the final economics of the test automation project. To support this task with an exact method, we propose a model for evaluation of the automated testing architecture. This model is based on principal structural elements, which can be identified in the automated test scripts. Elements are then composed the particular architecture and for each of them, a set of properties and metrics are defined. Using the pro-posed metrics, more accurate estimations of implementation and maintenance costs can be performed for the particular architecture and test automation case, especially reflecting duplicity and reuse ratio of the code.
