- Assess Testability
The ‘Assess Testability ‘ process begins with establishing early feedback on measurability and testability of certain foundation documents that describe the capability under test. Feedback on test requirements and resources needed to support critical issue evaluation and data requirements should help shape the rationale for the given foundation documents that will baseline Step 1 identification of test information required for the decision maker. The required information usually centers on the current capability under test, which may be in the form of concepts, prototypes, EDMs, or production-representative/production systems, depending on the capability development phase. The required information consists of performance evaluations of effectiveness and suitability, providing insights into how well the system meets the user’s needs at a point in time.
