Statistical Techniques for Modeling and Simulation Validation

September, 2016
In DoD test and evaluation, collecting sufficient data to evaluate system performance against operationally realistic threats is often not possible due to cost and resource restrictions, safety concerns, or lack of adequate o....
Foundations of Psychological Measurement

February, 2016
DoD engages in psychological measurement to place military personnel into specialties, evaluate their mental health, evaluate the quality of human systems interactions, and identify factors that affect crime rates on bases.
Users Are Part of the System: How to Account for Human Factors When Designing Operational Tests for Software Systems

July, 2017
This talk briefly discusses best practices and design options for including the user in the Design of Experiments and presents a real-world example.
Applications of Modern Statistical Techniques to Operational Testing

August, 2016
Conducting realistic tests with representative users in a full operational environment means designing efficient tests, extracting information of available test data, and making use of validated models and simulations.
Bayesian Reliability: Combining Information

July, 2016
One of the most powerful features of Bayesian analyses is the ability to combine multiple sources of information in a principled way to perform inference.
Introduction to Survey Design

June, 2016
The briefing was broken into three major sections: conceptualizing surveys, writing survey items, and formatting surveys.
Bayesian Analysis in R/STAN

July, 2016
Armor protection and projectile lethality tests often use sensitivity experiments to characterize a projectile's probability of penetrating the armor.
Tutorial on Sensitivity Testing in Live Fire Test and Evaluation

June, 2016
Armor protection and projectile lethality tests often use sensitivity experiments to characterize a projectile's probability of penetrating the armor.
DOT&E Reliability Course

June, 2016
This reliability course for DOT&E action officers covers reliability planning and analysis activities that span the acquisition life cycle.
A First Step into the Bootstrap World

May, 2016
This briefing motivates bootstrapping through an intuitive explanation of basic statistical inference, discusses the right way to resample for bootstrapping, and uses examples from operational testing where the bootstrap appr....
