16 Critical Software Practices
Comments About the Program Manager's Guide to Software Acquisition Best Practices (version 2.0)
  • Program Manager, U.S. Army
    "I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your support. [Our program] had been plagued by system lock-ups, and BIT/BITE false alarms. [Your assessment team] was instrumental as "red team" participants, making several critical recommendations, including the conduct of a design of experiments (DOE) for system software. Their recommendations were accepted and implemented. As a result, [the program] successfully completed the Limited User Test II...and suffered no system lock-ups and only four confirmed false alarms on six systems with 2007 operational hours. These outstanding results are due in large part to the excellent advice and support provided by [your assessment team].

    Once again, thank you for your superb support."
