Mission of the Director, Developmental Test & Evaluation (DDT&E)

DWSS

Improve acquisition outcomes by

advancing “state of the practice”

    • DDT&E supports:
  • Program Offices and DoD T&E community
  • Test planning and data analysis
  • Early discovery of deficiencies
  • Identification and sharing of best practices
  • Improve DT&E practice thru:
  • DT Policy & Oversight
  • Advancing DT&E Capability and Service Competencies

studies on t e and acquisition
Studies on T&E and Acquisition

“Approximately 50% of programs completing IOT&E since 2000 have been assessed as not operationally effective and/or suitable.”

2008 DSB Report on Developmental Test and Evaluation

“. . .beginning production before successfully demonstrating that the weapon system will work as intended increases the potential for discovering costly design changes…and usually requires substantial modification costs at a later time.”

2008 GAO Assessments of Selected Weapon Programs

dt e influences acquisition
DT&E Influences Acquisition

LPD-17

  • Pre-IOT&E:
  • AOTR showed high risk to IOT&E
  • Accurately predicted unfavorable results
  • Added time/expense to retest failures

C-5 RERP

  • Milestone B:
  • Adequacy / affordability of the plan
  • Design of Experiments analysis
  • Risk at MS C (Knowledge points) drove
  • agreement with PEO

SDB II

Level of DT&E Engagement

P-8A

  • Milestone C:
  • ITT engaged early and continuously
  • Risk of redesign carefully considered
  • Stable design and predictable performance
  • Low risk – Program entered LRIP on time

  • A few DDT&E observations:
  • Lack of DT&E expertise during program formulation
  • DT&E program planning and resourcing not adequate
  • System immaturity at MS C or at OTRR
  • Inadequate reliability growth programs
