  1. There is little or no preparation work required
  2. It is simply a matter of recording a manual test and replaying it once you have learned the tool
  3. The amount of effort required to automate any given test procedure will be mostly dependent on the size (number of steps or actions) required to perform it
  4. Programming skills are not required but are helpful
