The goal of software testing is to find errors, and a good test is one that has a high probability of finding an error. Effective Testing produces high quality software.Testing can be conducted manually as well as automated. This paper presents the concept of automation and manual testing and problems with manual testing and benefits of automatic testing.We have also presented a process of Test Automation using Keyword Driven approach. The input in the form of natural language is converted to machine readable code snippet and that will be executed under framework to produce reports. Using this framework, we can improve reusability of automated test.The main objective of this research paper is to focus on, effectiveness and importance of automation testing.
