Test and Evaluation

Course #OA4603

Est.imated Completion Time: 3 months


This course is designed to cover Developmental and Operational Test and Evaluation and Military Experimentation, including statistical concepts and methods frequently used in weapon system testing and experimentation environments. The course is taught from the perspective of the Program Manager, Test Project Officer, Test Engineer, Test Analyst, and Statistician. A number of actual military cases are used for examples. Topics include the Role of Test and Evaluation in Systems Engineering and Acquisition Management, Test Planning and Design, Development of Measures of Effectiveness and Measures of Performance, Conduct of Tests, Data Analysis, and Reporting of Test Results. A detailed group test planning project and design exercise are included. Upon successful completion of this course, students receive DAWIA Level II and Level III Intermediated and Advanced Test and Evaluation certification.
