Applied Test & Evaluation
$1990 per person
Test and evaluation (T&E) provide the means to ensure that a product performs in the intended way and with the intended results. Testing starts very early in a product system development, however, because test planning is dependent on good requirements. This course teaches the details of test and evaluation from product concept through operations, with a view toward application in large system development. The course is highly practical, helping students to understand not only what must be done, but why it is necessary. Students learn about a stakeholder view of test and evaluation, the use of requirements as the primary staypoint for verification, planning a test program in terms of strategy, plans, and procedures, the statistical analysis of a test prior to performing the test, the differences between integration testing and final testing, and how to conduct tests at different phases of product/system development, production and support. Practice the skills on a realistic product system. Design a test program for a typical product system. Build the robotic system. Implement the test program. Analyze the results. The Robotic Test Challenge Exercise gives students the opportunity to practice the skills taught in the course from end to end during development and support of actual operating robots. The exercise happens in four segments throughout the course, encompassing a total of six hours in highly practical learning.View course sampler
