If you are looking for a career with an amazing salary? Then Automation Testing is a great choice for you.
Automation testing jobs would be a good choice for beginners and they can become good professionals by doing so. Emerson and Schneider are the top leading industrial automation companies.
Many industries in India are being automated.There are many job opportunities in these sectors.The companies like Tata, Mahindra are being automated now.
Do you need to know about Automated robots?
Automation can be defined as a process in which the equipment or a system works automatically. So we can do an industrial process with very less human intervention. Automation has made a huge revolution in the industrial sector. It has improved the efficiency, productivity, and reliability of the process in the industrial sector.
Automation is widely used in many industries such as chemical, power plant, automobile, hospitals, and a lot more.
What is the need for Automation and what is industrial automation?
Automation would reduce the human workload and also the human errors. It would be useful in certain working environments where humans can’t operate. The speed, reliability, repeatability of the industrial process can be easily improved with the help of automation.
In industrial production plants the production can be easily carried out by robots instead of humans. So in industrial automation automated robots are used instead of manpower
Advantages of automation?
- Maintenance cost can be reduced
- Accuracy can be improved
- Improved production
- Automated system can be used in hazardous environments
- Automated Robots can perform well better than human in many industrial tasks
- Efficiency and productivity can be improved
Major Automated Industries
- Chemical industry
- Automobile industry
- Power plant
Artificial intelligence can be considered as the next level of automation. The major disadvantage of automation is that the machines in a system are not capable of making proper decisions and this can be solved by the AI. By adding artificial intelligence in an automated system it would make the system or the equipment intelligent enough to take proper decisions in case of any hazardous situations.
What is Automation Testing?
Automation testing is the testing of software and other products in an industry. Mostly the software testing is done by certain testing tools such as Selenium, Cypress.io, etc. The major advantage of doing the automation testing is to create better quality software and thus the industrial automation process can be easily carried out.
This type of testing is done to reduce the time of the test execution and this test would be quicker than the manual testing. Testing would be carried out manually and automatically, in the case of manual testing it won’t be accurate and it won’t be able to perform the repeatable tasks. In the case of automated testing, it can be used for repeatable tasks.
The automated test would be carried out very easily and can be carried out very fast, but manual testing would take a lot of time. In the automated testing, the test cases can be tested several times, while in case of the manual testing it can’t be tested several times. Manual automation would be really effective because it is carried out by humans and fewer errors could occur.
In the case of automated testing, it is not as reliable as manual testing but it can be carried out several times. Automated testing would be really costly when compared to manual testing.
Most of the industrial sector has been automated, so the opportunities of the automation testers is blooming in india.
Why Automated Testing?
This type of testing is done to reduce the time of the test execution and this test would be quicker than the manual testing

IT test Automation Engineer
They need to design advanced test scripts for the industrial applications.
ETL Python Test Automation Engineer
They would develop automation frameworks and also they would do the manual regression testing during any industrial process issues. Automation testing would be conducted by using various automation tools.
Network Protocol Test Engineer with Automation
Someone who works with the network protocols such as IPV4, Ipv6, UDP, TCP, etc. They would also work with many industrial protocols such as BGP, OSPF, ARP, L2VPN, L3VPN, etc. They would also create test plans and also execute the automation tests.
The role of a QA Engineer is to design the test strategy and test plans for different situations in the automated industries.
Senior software Engineer – Test Automation
One who develops software with the help of certain programming languages such as Python. They would also perform certain tests too.
Senior Test Engineer
One who carries out the manual testing and they would also create test plans according to the situation which arises in an industrial process. They would also do the automation testing by using certain testing applications.
Security Automation Testing Engineer
One who does the manual and automated security testing with the help of network and cloud infrastructure.
What are the different types of Automation Testing?
Functional and non functional tests
The functional tests are the tests which will be conducted to test the logic of the application for which it is created, like the automatic operation of a machine. The non functional tests are conducted to determine the security and performance of the application. So in case there is any need to improve the performance of the application we could detect it by doing this test.
These tests are carried out to determine if the application which is created would satisfy the requirements for which it is designed for. Smoke test is the test which is conducted immediately after creating the application.
This type of test would be carried out after the smoke test, in this test as the name indicates many modules would be integrated together and after that the functionality of the application would be checked.
This type of testing is conducted to determine that the application which is created works in a similar way after the changes have been made.
This type of testing is carried out to determine if the application which is created can handle severe conditions. So after creating the application this test is conducted to determine if the application can handle extreme work loads.
This test is conducted after all the tests, it is the last step of the test for the application. This test is done to find out that the application which is created would satisfy the industrial requirements.
