:point_right: To apply test automation, the project must run on platforms such as Web, Desktop App, Mobile and API. The reason is because test automation tools support very well on these platforms, especially on mobile platforms and web apps.

Project size

:point_right: The number of MMs for testing must be greater than 3MM.

Have regression testing

:point_right: Projects must have iterative testability. Average >= 20% Effort test

Test environment

:point_right: It is necessary to determine what environments the project will test on. Note: the more test environments, the higher the MM savings for the project.

Network system

:point_right: The project needs to understand the network environment of the project to choose the appropriate tools (Fsoft network or client).
