Abstract : This study was conducted by the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCADWAR) to evaluate the Interactive Development Environments (IDE) software product known as the T tool. The evaluation was initiated at the request of NAVAIRSYSCOM AIR-54661 to determine the applicability of these tools to the SSA environment. The conduct of the evaluation spanned the time period from March 1994 through September 1994. A "Plan for Testing the T tool for SSA" was presented to and approved by AIR-54661 in April, 1994. The T tool is a specification based test case generation tool. This means that a specification which describes the inputs and outputs of a process or module is the only basis for producing the test cases. T was previously evaluated by Christine Youngblut of the Institute for Defense Analysis (item h in Applicable Documents) who reported that StP/T is currently being used by various government organizations including the Naval Avionics Center, the Jet Propulsion Laboratories, Naval Coastal Systems Center and US. Army Forts Monmouth and Sill.
