Abstract:

The growing cost and schedule constraints on government weapons development programs as well as their rising complexity increase the need for a decision theoretic-framework for product development. This framework must rely on insight gained from a variety of sources for test planning, test evaluation, and decision support. The best practices presented in this article for system-level developmental test planning and execution are collected from reported experience and criticism of industry and government product development programs. These practices and methodologies are applied in a coherent framework that allows a formal combination of the disparate sources of product knowledge available to decision makers in the early stages of development.
