CONFORMANCE TESTING

Conformance testing is the method for evaluating how well a product/system (e.g. data, software, hardware, etc.) conforms to system, user, and/or enterprise requirements through implementation of community standards and specifications (i.e. DoD IT Standards Registry (DISR)), in accordance with applicable Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and/or other Department of Defense Instruction. Testers use a combination of data, software, procedures, and/or expertise to determine conformance of the product/system to standards requirements (e.g. performance, actions/reactions, format/content, wavelength specifications, etc.). Successful completion of standards conformance testing enhances the probability of interoperability with other products/systems that have also been tested for conformance to standards requirements.

Various standards agencies/groups sponsor JITC’s development of test capabilities and procedures necessary to test systems for conformance to standards requirements.
