Abstract : These proceedings record the results of a mini-symposium held on 28 Feb - 3 Mar 1994. The goal of the mini-symposium was to provide a forum in which the military operations research and test and evaluation communities could identify key issues and develop novel and useful insights into more cost-effective test and evaluation. The objective of the mini-symposium was to address fundamental questions that relate both to the design of a test program and assessment of its use of resources and the assessment and improvement of the extent to which the products of test and evaluation meet user needs. The questions addressed reflected various sources including statistical committees of the National Research Council and a Users' Committee that surveyed key users of T&E products and insured representation of their interests in the mini-symposium.
