The JADS Joint Test and Evaluation JT and E was chartered by the Deputy Director, Test, Systems Engineering and Evaluation Test and Evaluation, Office of the Secretary of Defense OSD Acquisition and Technology in October 1994 to investigate the utility of ADS technologies for support of developmental test and evaluation DT and E and operational test and evaluation OT and E. A key finding of the JADS JT and E is that the primary challenges to developing and executing a distributed test are programmatic rather than technical. The requirement to interact with multiple facilities and organizations with their associated processes presents potential problems over the full range of test planning from concept development to implementation. This special report is a companion report to the JADS special report. A Test Planning Methodology From Concept Development Through Test Execution. The report mirrors the advanced distributed simulation ADS- based test planning and implementation steps and provides insight into the challenges a program or test manager will encounter during each step.
