The main purpose of this master's thesis is to present experiences of test automation in an industrial case, and to make recommendations of the best practices for the case. The recommendations are based on successful test automation stories found from the existing literature. The main issues that are hindering test automation seem to be similar in the case example and in the literature. The cost of implementation and maintenance combined with unrealistic expectations are perceived in almost every project. However, in the most successful projects, they have put a lot of effort to plan and implement maintainable sets of automatic tests. In conclusion, the evidence from the literature shows that successful test automation needs investments - especially in the beginning of the project. A few specific best practices are adapted to the case project, and presented in the form that they could be applied.
