Program Test & Evaluation Strategy (TES)

Welcome Program Test & Evaluation Strategy (TES). You will learn that the Test & Evaluation Master Plan (TEMP) includes a Test Strategy that describes the software development testing. The software test strategy includes how automated testing is used within the Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery/Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline. The DoDI 5000.89 is the basis for the TEMP and Test Strategy. The DoDI 5000.89 includes the use of the Digital Engineering Strategy (DES) and the DevSecOps Strategy to help describe the software test event necessary to test modern software. This micro course is in support of the DevSecOps series of credentials.
