Test and Evaluation for Systems Development Certificate
Embrace Test and Evaluation Principles for Enhanced Success.
This certificate encompasses the broad spectrum of T&E and how that
function provides critical support to the overall system development
lifecycle. Interactive exercises reinforcing the development of concise,
effective and verifiable requirements mark the beginning of this training.
Subject matter experts share their experience and guidance in focusing
you on the strengths and avoiding the pitfalls of simple to complex
programs. The importance of the integration of activities linking
requirements generation and maturation, to the effective and efficient
test coordination, consolidation and planning, to data collection and
reporting, to eventual system verification and validation is stressed
and practiced through engaging and instructive practicums.
In each course, you are taught the detailed use of practical tools,
methodologies and approaches. You will participate in hands-on
examples to reinforce and solidify their uses and applications. In the
current economy, cost effective and design-to-cost principles are
essential and will be explored and applied. In addition to its core
functions, the use of T&E for trade study support, maturation of
new technologies and risk management and reduction is introduced
and explored. The integration of T&E functions in the successful
completion of the overall systems development is emphasized.
