More than 70% of automation script failures are false and are caused by poor automation design practices.
The False Failure Rate (FFR) is the percentage of tests that falsely fail when a test suite is run. It is calculated by dividing the number of false failures (failed tests that actually passed) by the total number of tests that were executed during a test run. Higher false failure rates increase testing and maintenance costs. By reducing false failures, you can save time and money on automated testing. I’ve compiled 10 best practices that can help test automation engineers reduce false failure rates while implementing test automation in agile or waterfall projects.
