Manual process v/s Automation process for Finding Locators

In this scenario, we are examining the time spent on locating unique identifiers for a 10-page website, each page containing 30 locators.

Our study categorizes testers into three levels: Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert. Additionally, we assess three levels of complexity: Low, Medium, and High.

Our objective is to determine the precise time required by testers to retrieve a locators.

Total time in minutes= Average Time * 30 (number of locators on each page) * 10 (number of pages on the website)

 The below table shows the average time required to find a single locator for each category (as per web sources):


Now, we can calculate the total time to find locators for a 10-page website with 30 locators on each page:


Cost Calculation per resource:

 The company has made significant investments in testing at various skill levels, incurring ongoing hourly costs. Much of this time is spent searching for a unique locator. When the locator changes due to development updates, the process must start again, incurring additional time and cost.


However, by using the FindMyLocator tool, testers’ efficiency and accuracy are greatly improved, resulting in a remarkable reduction in costs that may exceed your expectations. The table below illustrates the time and costs associated with finding a unique locator for users at different skill levels.


The following graph displays the time required by novice users to locate unique identifiers on webpages of varying complexity.

FindMyLocator is a remarkable tool that excels in reducing the time spent and enhancing efficiency when it comes to locating unique identifiers. It offers a solution that dramatically cuts down the costs associated with extra time testers take for the specific task of finding locators. With its capabilities, FindMyLocator not only streamlines the process but also delivers cost savings to an extraordinary degree.
