This report studied: (1) how indicator systems are being used; (2) how indicator systems are designed and developed; (3) some factors necessary to sustain a system; and (4) potential implications for the development and use of a

This report assessed the progress of federa

This report addresses Test & Evaluation (T&E) of software intensive systems & the DoD's efforts to improve the software process. DoD software costs total over $30 billion a year, of which 2/3's is for maintaining, upgrading, & modifying operational systems already in production. Today's major defense systems depend largely on the quality of this complex & increasingly costly software. Because software error can cause a system to fail, possibly with life threatening consequences, software intensive systems need to be thoroughly tested before production. Charts & tables.
