Integrated test and evaluation (T&E) management: The Information Mission Assessment Tool (IMAT) prototype
by Guernsey, Gregory Gene, Ph.D., Union Institute and University, 2009, 373; 3388401
Abstract (Summary)

This dissertation demonstrates the value of using an automated tool to facilitate the business process of operational test and evaluation (OT&E) for new information technology (IT) systems. The prototype tool, the Information Mission Assessment Tool (IMAT), enables smaller OT&E teams to accomplish higher quality evaluations in less time. The IMAT has been used in the OT&E of IT systems across the Department of Defense, to include each of the military Services. Since the IMAT is software, this dissertation documents the project with a contextual essay and the user manual. The contextual essay contributes to software studies through its analysis of the artistic and scientific aspects of software quality assurance.

Key terms. automated data collection and analysis; information technology; integrated test and evaluation; software studies; test and evaluation management
