Abstract : The purpose of this memorandum is to present the results of experimentation with MCS 10.02.1 software to include testing methodology used by AES. Since no formal issues for experimentation were provided AES (other than to determine whether fixes/enhancements to MCS segment 10.02.1 worked) this report will provide a chronology of AES experimentation and the findings, conclusions and recommendations concerning the software. More detailed procedures/findings are documented in the enclosed OMNIBUS Contractor's reports. Since AES does not have access to the MCS 10.02.1 source code, it can only define test conditions and results. On 5 September 1989, AES received nine copies of MCS Segment 10.02.1 software from Ford Aerospace, Leavenworth, Kansas. A Ford Aerospace tester accompanied the software and briefed AES personnel on the changes made to MCS Version 10.02 software. ADEA initially conducted two days of laboratory evaluation (6-7 Sep 89) on the software concentrating primarily on those fixes/enhancements that had been made in the following areas: File Transfer, SUMREP, Free Text Message, and Tape Copy. Commercial autodial capability was not examined. In addition, AES evaluated the training implications of the fixes/enhancements. Results of the initial experimentation were documented and forwarded to TSM MCS and PM OPTADS on 12 September (Enclosure 1).
