Abstract : the Software OT&E Guidelines is a set of handbooks prepared by the Computer/Support Systems Division of the Test and Evaluation Directorate of the Air Force Test and Evaluation Center (AFTEC) for use in the operational test and evaluation (OT&E) of software. Volumes in the set include: (1) Software Test Managers Handbook (AFTEP 800-1); (2) Handbook for the Deputy for Software Evaluation (AFTECP 800-2); (3) Software Maintainability Evaluator's Handbook (AFTECP 800-3); (4) Software Operator-Machine Interface Evaluator's Handbook (AFTECP 800-4); and (5) Software Support Facility Evaluation Tools User's Handbook (AFTECP 800-5). The Software Test Manager's Handbook was prepared as a guide for the HQ AFTEC software test managers in performing their jobs. It provides a description of the AFTEC approach to OT&E of software. The document is not directive, but rather a reference document for planning OT&E. It contains general instructions and information on the use of various software evaluation tools available to the software test manager, and lessons learned from efforts on earlier programs.
