Abstract:

The report discusses an example of how experimental controls can be used in an operating environment. A field test of this sort requires that the initial problem be well defined, and that the design of the test is clearly and simply related to the problem. Too often test designs become unwieldly and overly complex because the design incorporates too many operations. A field test of this kind is designed to obtain relatively precise information about a specific problem and a few variables rather than uncertain and confounded information about a wide ranging problem.
