I'd say the core problem here lies with the "or" in that last sentence. 
It implies that *all* tests can be done by *either* a computer *or* a 
person. You would probably want something more along the lines of: 
"Carrying out the entire series of tests will require people who 
understand this document. However, some (or even "a small subset of") 
tests can be automated / performed by computer programs."
