Question: How to estimate a test automation project from scratch? or What is the base for estimating test automation projects?


This is completly based on the your function point you have identified in the AUT.

depends upon the factors such as:
1. AUT wat is the scripting tages used like if a aopplicatin is XML then which is the best tool we select..for web based testing example.

secondly it depend upon user interface, screens how many pages need to be automated whether all dropdown values for eg cant be handled.

Also, special requirements like error handling mechanism of a site like a proxy pop-up menu at run time coming up , so need some tool to handle it.

and there are so many other factors that form the part of automation strategy...but then the tedius job is to plan the number of test cases, ie automation candidates... hope i answered ur question.... Estimation what u said depends upon whether or not it is feasible to deploy the tool in ur projedt.../there are many cost factors as well. Source:
