SOT 310 - Science of Test: Experimental Design and Analysis I

Video placeholder

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.

To Apply

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 access to AFIT's network. In order to access AFIT's network, an AFIT-specific DD Form 2875 is required & 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 & instructions on how to fill it out are located on AFIT/LS's website at: https://www.afit.edu/LS/ click on Student Information and select DD Form 2875.
