It provides a framework within which to generate detailed T&amp;E plans and documents schedule and resource implications associated with the T&amp;E program. The TEMP identifies the necessary Developmental Test and Evaluation (DT&amp;E), Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&amp;E), and Live Fire Test and Evaluation (LFT&amp;E) activities. It relates program schedule, test management strategy and structure, and required resources to&#58; Critical Operational Issues (COIs), Critical Technical Parameters (CTPs), objectives and thresholds documented in the Capability Development Document (CDD), evaluation criteria, and milestone decision points. For multi- Service or joint programs, a single integrated TEMP is required. Component-unique content requirements, particularly evaluation criteria associated with COIs, can be addressed in a component-prepared annex to the basic TEMP.</div>

Any testing used to assist in the development and maturation of products, product elements, or manufacturing or support processes. 2.) Any engineering-type test used to verify status of technical progress, verify that design risks are minimized, substantiate achievement of contract technical performance, and certify readiness for initial operational testing. Development tests generally require instrumentation and measurements and are accomplished by engineers, technicians, or soldier operator-maintainer test personnel in a controlled environment to facilitate failure analysis.</div>

Its purpose is to reduce technology, engineering, integration, and life cycle cost risk to the point that a decision to contract for Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) can be made with confidence in successful program execution for development, production, and sustainment. The phase includes activities intended to reduce specific risks associated with the product to be developed. Activities include additional design trades and requirements trades to ensure an affordable product and executable development and production programs. Capability requirements are matured and validated and affordability caps are finalized during this phase. This phase normally includes competitive sources conducting technology maturation and risk reduction activities and preliminary design activities up to and including a Preliminary Design Review prior to source selection for the EMD Phase.</div>
