Life science companies would love to get rid of inefficient and costly validation processes, may it be electronic manual tests or even worst, paper based manual tests. The only answer to this problem is "test automation". But the challenge is that if you use test automation for validation, then you need to keep your test automation infrastructure and processes also in a validated state. But the test automation world is too complex for validation and even more difficult to keep it in a validated state given the nature of frequent changes, upgrades and a myriad of tools used.
Test Automation field is evolving with unprecedented pace to avoid pitfalls and overcome challanges of design complexity, selecting appropriate tools, agility and efficiency. Model Based Testing (MBT) could be a breakthrough for the industry as MBT tools now offer comprehensive solution for integrated test design and automation. At xLM, we have unearthed MBT solutions that overcome most challenges faced in traditional test automation.
