Tasking to support accreditation of Test and Evaluation Facilities in support of IFF Program Develop an accreditation case for T&E facilities for operational testing Applied risk-based M&S VV&A approach to facilities Approach applied successfully to...
Publication
Because there can be serious negative consequences from acting on erroneous M&S and analysis conclusions, the DOD has developed and is exercising a risk-based process for verifying, validating and accrediting M&S used in system acquisition. Basing...
Publication
When we think of validating models and simulations (M&S), we all think of comparing M&S outputs with test data. But how many of us have ever actually been successful in accomplishing that comparison in any repeatable and statistically significant way...
Publication
The Department of Defense (DOD) is exercising a risk-based process for verifying, validating and accrediting models and simulations (M&S) used in system acquisition. Test and laboratory facilities can potentially have even greater potential negative...
