Description:
This one week course, designed for program office and ALC personnel, emphasizes classical design principles and teaches students basic techniques and processes needed to create a statistically rigorous and defensible test for military weapon systems. A well-designed test can lead to reduced development lead time with fewer tests required, provide greater insight to system performance, and ultimately lead to fielding better, more reliable systems. The student will learn how to plan, conduct and analyze tests efficiently in this course.

DSN: 785-7777 ext.3117

Prerequisites:
None, but this course has a heavy emphasis on Probability and Statistic techniques and conducts exercises using statistical theories and software. Students must have an understanding of basic Probability and Statistics theory. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that students refresh their knowledge by taking DAU’s CLE 35 – Introduction to Probability and Statistics computer-based course.

Grade Restrictions:
(none)

Special Requirements:
OSD policy guidance emphasizes that elements of experimental design be included in Test and Evaluation Master Plans (TEMPs) and Test Plans for approval of those documents. Science of Test is the structured process used to identify the metrics, factors, and levels that most directly affect test execution and that should be reflected in detailed test plans and TEMPs. ***This course requires computer access to AFIT's network. In order to access AFIT's network, an AFIT-specific DD Form 2875 is required and must be returned to AFIT/LS NLT 14 DAYS prior to the class start date students that do not complete the form WILL BE CANCELLED from the class. The form and instructions on how to fill it out are located on AFIT/LS's website at: http://www.afit.edu/ls/index.cfm then Click on "Information Resources" and Select "DD Form 2875 - Access to AFIT's Network". Any questions can be directed to AFIT/LS Training Administrators at DSN 785-7777x3164 or e-mail AFIT.LSACOURSEMANAGER@afit.edu. NOTE: No walk-in students will be allowed.***
