From Accountant To Scientist

In many of my posts I have alluded to the automation stack my team is building, but I have not provided any details. The next month or so of posts will remedy that: first I'll discuss the problems we are trying to solve and then I'll explain how we're going about doing that.

Those of you doing model-based testing will likely note that you don't have some of the problems I talk about. While I don't disagree I do think that many of these problems simply move into the model's implementation.
