Abstract:

This issue of the Review is devoted to the Acquisition Management area of Test and Evaluation. The need for Test and Evaluation planning early in all phases of the acquisition process cannot be overstressed. It is of particular importance to determine the criteria for success or failure well before the tests are planned and conducted so that evaluation of the results will have integrity. One of the greatest difficulties is insuring the testing environment is as close to the operational environment as possible. In this issue, Test and Evaluation is addressed from different perspectives. Viewpoints vary as do to the reported approaches to management.
