Abstract:

The purpose of the study is to learn what and why Operational test and evaluation OT and E is required during the Armys materiel acquisition cycle in order to understand the effect of OT and E requirements on Army project management. The study effort included research of the background of the formalization of OT and E requirements in the Armys materiel acquisition process and the requirements that exist now and an investigation, primarily through interviews, into the effect on current project management. OT and E is required to support decisions to enter full-scale development, initial production, full production, and deployment. The effect of OT and E requirements is that not all the incremental costs of OT and E are funded by the operational tester. Some of those costs must be provided from project resources.
