    Most recommended:
    ...
    avoid having BRITTLE SCRIPTS.this issue. This pattern
    ABSTRACTION LEVELS: This is the pattern to apply if you want to delegate some of the maintenance effort to the testers. It will enable you to write test cases that are both independent from the SUT and from the technical implementation of the automation (including the tools(s)).
    MAINTAINABLE TESTWARE: This is the pattern to apply if you want to get rid of the issue once and for all. If you haven't implemented it yet, you may want to apply at least some aspects of this pattern.

    Other people have trouble understanding what the tests are, what the scripts do, how the automation works etc. The issue to look at is INADEQUATE DOCUMENTATION.
    You have written all your scripts in the language and structure of your current tool, but that tool is no longer appropriate for you. The issue you should look up is TOOL DEPENDENCY.

    for the unsatisfactory quality of the Automation:maintenance expectations not being met:
    Maintenance costs too high. Maintenance of the automation is (considered) too expensive.
    Not able to reuse existing data. Problems with test data. If it's faster (and easier) to create new data than to reuse existing data, or no-one knows what data is available to use, the issue to look at is TEST DATA LOSS. If you can only use test data once before it gets corrupted, test data is only valid for one release, or data has to be updated from release to release, then the issue to look at is INCONSISTENT DATA.
