Manual testing involves the meticulous examination of software products by experienced testing professionals without relying on automated tools or scripts. This oldest and most stringent form of testing aims to ensure a good user experience by simulating end-user interactions and uncovering unexpected behaviors or bugs. Manual testing adapts easily to changes and new challenges, allowing testers to quickly detect defect patterns and differentiate them from minor deviations.

While automated testing is valuable for repetitive tests and code stability, manual testing remains indispensable. At QAT Global, we approach manual testing as an interactive and exploratory process. We establish a testing strategy, develop a comprehensive test plan, and create detailed test cases to ensure thorough coverage of all application features. Our testers assume the role of end-users, meticulously exploring the software to identify defects and provide insights on achieving efficient, business-oriented solutions.
Manual testing encompasses various stages, including unit testing, integration testing, system testing, and user acceptance testing. It excels in User Interface Testing, User Acceptance Testing, Usability Testing, Error Handling Testing, Installation Testing, and Security Testing. While automation testing has its merits, manual testing remains an essential component of the software development lifecycle, delivering invaluable human expertise to ensure software quality and meet user expectations.
