Is it functional? Is it safe? Is it rigorous? Is it detrimental? Over the last two decades Test and Evaluation (T&E) techniques have evolved in response to the increasing complexity and interdependency of systems. The safe and proper operation of the complex systems and consumer products used in energy, transportation, electronics and communications, can no longer be realized without a formalized T&E program. Features include:
- Easy–to–understand guide to the seven Best Practices for planning an effective T&E program
- A useful model of the T&E Engineering process
- T&E of computer programs, Modelling and Simulation, Operational T&E and Interoperability T&E
- Case studies from both governmental and commercial sectors
- T&E resources world–wide including the addresses of local T&E chapters
Purposely written with the priorities of you the program manager and systems engineer in mind. This book masterfully captures the basic principles of T&E, specifically applying them to a variety of industries. Test and Evaluation of Complex Systems forms part of the Wiley Series in Measurement Science and Technology. Chief Editor: Peter Sydenham Australian Centre for Test and Evaluation, University of South Australia. This series was founded to coincide with the recognition of measurement science and instrument technology as fields with their own scholarship and techniques.
