Software testing plays a vital role in the software development life cycle. Having a more accurate testing process is still demanded at industries. On the other hand, software testing is a costly process and it can take of up to 50 % of total development cost. There are several ways for minimizing testing cost such as: test suite reduction and tests automation. Therefore, most of the testing projects are trying to translate their manual test case specifications to automated one in order to improve productivity and coverage. Moreover, the number of required test cases for testing a product can be quite large, which is directly dependent on the product size, requirements, policies, testing level etc. Selecting a subset of test cases for automation might end up to a more efficient usage of the testing resources. Therefore, one of the key steps to commence automation testing is, selecting the appropriate manual test cases for automation and also determining the return on investment value ROI.

In this thesis, we have a plan to select the correct manual test candidates of automation and determine various other factors which will yield better test results and benefits. The fallowing criteria can be considered as important factors for selecting test cases for execution: requirement coverage, execution time, test cases size. However, the problem is not limited to the mentioned criteria and other important criteria need to be determined during this thesis. In order to show the feasibility of the proposed approach in this thesis, Bombardier transportation will provide a large set of manual test cases in the integration testing level as an industrial case study. A model for ROI needs to be implemented as the performance measure to evaluate the efficiency of the proposed approach.
