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 Manager's Handbook (AFTECP 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 Maintainability Evaluator's Handbook was prepared as a guide for the software evaluator participating in AFTEC's software maintainability evaluation process. It provides a description of AFTEC's methodology for performing this evaluation, as well as guidelines by which members of a team of evaluators can independently evaluate a body of software as to its maintainability. The handbook includes the characteristics by which both the source code and documentation are rated, as well as examples, explanations, and definitions.
