Competition is Fierce: Improving Your Quality Engineering with the Power of AI
Here are our top tips on how to improve your quality engineering services with the power of AI.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is seemingly everywhere, and for good reason. From driving citizen services in government to tailoring a personalized customer experiences in the private sector, AI is as flexible in application as it is powerful.
One area in which AI has made one of the most noticeable impacts is quality engineering services. These services help software developers and organizations save time and focus on the thing they do best, while lowering production costs, improving quality control standards and keeping up with rapidly evolving customer demands.
And in a world in which timing and quality are everything, using the power of AI to its full potential can produce big dividends. So if you are a quality assurance software engineer looking to leverage AI in your own design processes, or if you are an organization looking to take its use to the next level, here are our top tips on how to improve your quality engineering services with the power of AI.
Use AI to predict areas in which defects are more likely to occur
As you feed your AI-enabled quality engineering systems more data about the results of your past testing efforts, the AI can help you be more aware of how your code interacts with other modules and provide valuable insight into how you can test it more efficiently. It can also make predictions based on the code that was changed and identifying the parts of the code that were potentially affected.
You can then use this information to either make proactive design changes or create different, more specific tests to improve test coverage in the flagged areas. On the other hand, you can identify the areas of your system or design that are clear of defects based on automated testing or similar design principles. This will save time and resources and get your products to market faster.
Leverage AI to accurately predict quality control costs and timelines
Quality assurance software engineers can also use AI-powered testing tools to shape robust testing strategies that include precise cost and time estimates.
In addition to identifying modules of your design that do not need to be tested, an industry-leading quality assurance testing tool with AI can help testing managers automate test case design, prioritize defect resolution and streamline overall test tracking and stakeholder reporting.
The result is more accurate development and launch schedules, without the risk of lowering quality, security and integrity standards.
Lean on AI to effectively and efficiently test systems
End users expect more flexibility out of their systems and applications—including the operating systems, integrations, browsers and platforms that they are able to run on—so your team should use AI to broaden the testing scope, without slowing down the schedule.
Or, if you are developing an enhancement to an existing system, use AI to identify the features, functions or workflows that are most critical to end users. Then, you can create and run tests against them early on, preventing multiple rounds of user or regression testing that could slow your testing phase. AI can also help by detecting user behavior that indicates an error or a UX issue that occurred, which users sometimes do not report.
Elevate your quality engineering capacity with AI
Customers expect more from their products with a fast turnaround time, all without sacrificing quality or security. That’s why quality assurance software engineers have no choice but to use the latest industry tools and best practices to take their testing to the next level.
Fortunately, AI-enabled quality assurance tools have proved their ability to help organizations accelerate time to market, efficiently plan and scope testing, increase continuous development and maximize test coverage—all without adding more stress.
