Assess system performance against mission goals.
Testing is a component of every life cycle phase, but there comes a point when testing and evaluation is your focus. At this point, you need to connect your T&E activities to the engineering process and validate the models used. This work particularly includes:
- Performing unit, system, integration, developmental, and operational tests.
- Integrating “as built” models (digital prototypes).
- Supporting distributed testing.
- Validating requirements.
