Abstract:

The goals of this study are to obtain an overview of the management aspects associated with the test and evaluation TE of weapons systems being developed and acquired by the Naval Air Systems Command and to provide a frame of reference, familiarity with documentation, awareness of policies and procedures, an awareness of problems, and knowledge of sources of information. TE has gained increased importance recently because 1 Congress requires that TE reports be provided prior to appropriating procurement funds 2 A significant portion of the OSD decision process is based on TE results and 3 The cost and Technical complexity of properly testing weapons systems is increasing at a rate faster than for the systems themselves. Actions which could be taken during the TE planning effort to improve the value, effectiveness and efficiency are presented. Emphasis is placed on the need for early, good and continuing planning as a means for avoidingreducing historically troublesome areas. Budgeting, scheduling and implementation, control and interface, results, analysis and interpretation and feedback are discussed.
