Abstract:

Operational testing is an integral part of the materiel acquisition cycle in the Army procurement process. It is oriented towards the evaluation of a developmental item under realistic conditions as part of an actual troop unit. The test design phase is an essential element of operational testing. In order to facilitate the selection of measures of effectiveness used in these tests, the critical attributes which best discriminate between acceptable and unacceptable systems or subsystems need to be identified. This thesis addresses a method which provides a basis for the selection of these critical attributes. Once these attributes are identified, the test designers of subsequent operational tests may use this information to assist them in the test design phase.
