Examples; 10 of the 998 standard requirements:

  1. How do you quickly launch the automation project, create productive tests that make a difference, and pave the way for success in the ongoing development of test automation?

  2. What are the interactions that you find interesting between security-testing tools and other types of automated tools, automated build tools, automated performance managers?

  3. How would you go about determining what would be a reasonable ratio of time spent documenting tests to time spent executing tests for a particular organization or project?

  4. Are the environmental, safety and health (ES&H) aspects being properly addressed and are the future plans sufficient given the projects current stage of development?

  5. What scripting technique is used to build upon the structured scripting that has already been done and to implement this test automation to meet the business goals?

  6. If you ignore what the test does to directly fulfill its purpose, are the remainder of the test actions somehow different from the ones done by other tests?

  7. When implementing results reporting for test automation, how do you allow the reader to make a quick assessment of the progress of the test execution?

  8. How do the participants perceive the testing techniques should be integrated into the development, test and deployment process of portal applications?

  9. Are you able to perform offensive penetration testing with ethical hacking techniques or are you just doing automated vulnerability assessment?

  10. How do you manage software configuration in your development and testing environment (e.g., automated tools, spreadsheets, data storage, etc.)?
