Test Design Studio

Patterson Consulting's Test Design Studio is an exciting product that serves as an integrated development environment (IDE) for Unified Functional Testing (formerly QuickTest® Professional) scripts, VBScript files, and other assets used for test automation. Extensive support for HPE ALM (Application Lifecycle Management, formerly Quality Center) assures tight integration with the tools you use.

If you write Unified Functional Testing test scripts or libraries, you need to realize that you are a software developer! Even though these scripts are used for testing purposes, rest assured that you are creating program code. Just like the program code that goes into the applications under test, the code used for test automation deserves the same powerful editing experience and tools enjoyed by our developer counterparts. The sooner you treat test automation as a development activity, the sooner you will realize the cost-saving potential of this technology!

Our Test Design Studio product was the first on the market to treat Unified Functional Testing automation as a true programming activity and give your work the attention it deserves. The rich integrated development environment allows automation engineers to reach new levels of productivity.

AutoBloks Screen Shot


Automation should not be limited to those with coding skills. While there will always be products so complicated that a custom-built automation solution is required for success, we believe there is still a huge opportunity for less-technical users to automate significant portions of their testing process.

Our goal for AutoBloks is to build a solution that is approachable to less-technical users and can be used as scriptless automation tool. We are also not naive to believe that everything can be accomplished with a scriptless solution, so we are building extensibility points into the application so that less-technical users can get some assistance from their more technical friends to help tackle those tough scenarios that prevent non-extensible solutions from succeeding.
