Abstract:

Acquisition reform and the implementation of agile acquisition processes within the Air Force are allowing acquisition professionals greater flexibility in meeting user requirements. A strong emphasis is being placed on using mature systems and technologies, allowing new programs to be initiated at any point in the acquisition process continuum. Changes have been incorporated into the test and evaluation TE process to support the increased flexibility. Judicious use of the various types of recognized tests allow the program manager PM to reduce risk and ensure performance expectations are met. The following provides an overview of the test tools available to the acquisition professional and highlights the evolutionary changes that were recently incorporated into Air Force test guidance.
