Auxilium International is experienced in performing Test and Evaluation (T&E) for many different types of systems. Systems T&S consists of software products, communication systems, ISR systems, and other Intelligence systems.
T&E is the process by which a system or components are compared against requirements and specifications through testing. The results are evaluated to assess progress of design, performance, and supportability. It is absolutely critical that Developmental T&A is used as an engineering tool to reduce risk throughout the product/system life-cycle.
Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E) is the actual or simulated employment of a system by the users under realistic operational conditions. System test must assess:
Key aspects throughout the T&E process.
- Measures of Effectiveness are specific metrics that are used to measure results in the overall mission and execution of assigned tasks.
- Measures of Performance are specific metrics that have a pass or fail limit that must be satisfied. These are generally identified with the words shall or must in the specification.
- Measures of Suitability evaluate the ability to be supported in its intended operational environment. (A system with excessive failures may satisfy all other requirements and not be suitable for use)
