SWEN603 Section 9041 Systems Engineering Final Exam November 30, 2009 Name: Instructions: List all of your sources. For the equations involving math, you must show all of your work in order to get credit. 1) a) What is a TEMP? When is it initially prepared? Test and Evaluation Master Plan – this is the document that includes the test planning and supporting objectives. If a system requirement is to be specified, then there must be a way to measure and evaluate the system later to ensure that the requirement has been met; hence, testing, evaluation, and validation requirements are intuitive at an early point in time. Therefore, a TEMP is initially prepared during the latter stages of the conceptual design. b) What is a SEMP? Which plan must it be integrated with? Systems Engineering Management Plan – The program management plan leads to the development of the requirements for implementation of a systems engineering program and the preparation of a SEMP. Additionally, determining the technical requirements for the system involves implantation of the systems engineering process. The preparation of the SEMP and the system specification must be accomplished concurrently. The two documents must “talk” to each other and be mutually supportive. The SEMP must be closely integrated with the TEMP. Source: SEA, Chapter 6 pg 149 and Chapter 3 pg 56. 2) How many types of testing are there? Of these types, which are considered plan and preparation, which are considered more for conducting a test, and why? There are five different types of testing: Analytical, Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, and Type 4. The types that will fall under plan and preparation are analytical and Type 1 testing. Analytical testing is effective in providing insight and verification of certain design relationships. Also, at this point, one can easily detect potential interferences, conflicts in space utilization, and so on. Type 1 Testing falls under plan and preparation category due to use of models that represent either an entire system or designated system component, usually operate functionally but does not represent production equipment. During this type of testing, changes can be incorporated at minimum costs. 1 1

Type 2, Type 3, and Type 4 will all be considered “conducting a test.” Type 2 testing includes formal tests and demonstrations are accomplished during the latter part of detail design when preproduction prototype equipment, software, formal procedures and the like are available. Type 3 testing includes formal tests and demonstrations may be conducted following the initial system qualification testing and prior to the completion of the production phase. Field tests are completed during Type 3 testing. Type 4 testing is the completed during the operational phase with the formal tests are conducted to gain further insight in a specific area. Formal testing may also be accomplished in conjunction with the incorporation of technology enhancements and system upgrades to ensure that the appropriate measures of effectiveness are being maintained as system operations continue.
