Mission of the director developmental test evaluation ddt e l.jpg

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

  • MRAP

    Minimizing Discovery in IOT&E

    Studies on t e and acquisition l.jpg

    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

    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
