problem is you have to create the tests up front to the development, now you have a backwards phased project. (waterfall with the test automation in front)

In reply to Anonymous, I disagree that creating tests upfront is a problem.

Each ticket should have some acceptance tests defined prior to development - a) how else do you know when the ticket is completed? b) How can the tester understand the goals of the ticket?

Just some thoughts..

I think knowing what you are developing, you could in moments, come up with some basic first off tests to be run as acceptance tests, just to provide you that metric. The more comprehensive testing could follow when the product owner / customer get involved.
