Abstract:

While experimentation is an integral aspect of the capability development and acquisition process, its methods may be less familiar to testers. This article provides a framework for understanding the essence of an experiment, its central components, requirements for validity, and programmatic ways to increase experiment validity thru experiment campaigns. A followup article will compare experiments to tests.
