The objective of this thesis is to address the idea of implementing a viable T&F technique at the early stages of DT&E in order to reduce design discrepancies and minimize acquisition costs and time. The technique involves integration of Task Analysis, Operator Interviews and Link Analysis to evaluate a system's Functional Mock-up. The techniques will, therefore, be referred to as Integrtion Analysis thoughtout this paper. In orderto provide a measure of its contributions, it will be implemented on a recently procured system that experienced numerous NFE design discrepancies at its OT&E stage. The system in question, the Recovery, Assist, Securing and Traversing (RAST) System associated with the LAMPS MK III Acquisition, revealed NFE problems in relation to its LSO Control Station. The use of the subject technique could have discovered a majority of these problems much earlier in the Acquisition Process.
