This course focuses on the test and evaluation practices that are essential if complex systems are to be developed to meet users' expectations for functional and physical performance. The course provides a broad introductory overview of all aspects of test and evaluation, its role as part of systems engineering, its relationship to verification and validation, major types of T&E (development T&E, acceptance T&E, and operational T&E), T&E measures (critical operational issues, measures of effectiveness etc) and major T&E plans and documentation. The course has a strong practical element, both in terms of the introduction to the topic as well as formal practice in developing T&E measures and T&E master plans through exercises.
