Abstract : The purpose of the study was to provide the Army with an assessment of the philosophy, methodology and effectiveness of its test program and to suggest ways by which the test and evaluation process could be improved in order to assure sound test programs for the coming decade. The Army is currently suffering from the perception that its test and evaluation program is less than adequate. However, a number of improvements have been made in recent years in response to these criticisms. Implementation of the study's recommendations will go a long way toward continuing the process of regaining the confidence of Congress and the American people in the total Army acquisition process.
