The original operational test orientation of this
research is noted in the Background paragraph of Chapter 1
. To accomplish
the original objectives it was necessary to acquire considerable data
on the cost, schedule and performance success of programs within the Engineering
and Manufacturing Development (EMD) phase of development. The current research used
the original methodology and expands the results by including more recent
programs and additional parameters. Hence this report contains program cost,
schedule, and performance results by Service, and within three
separate year groupings. It also contains a comparison between the Services'
Operational Test Activity (OTA) test report and the Director Test and Evaluation
(DOT&E) independent evaluation of the Service test report.
