FESTA. D2.5. Planning and running a field operational test: FOT implementation plan
reportposted on 09.04.2010, 15:12 by John H. Richardson, FESTA Consortium
For a Field Operation Test (FOT) to proceed smoothly, a plan of action must be developed which documents the scientific, technical, administrative and procedural activities and tasks that are needed to successfully complete it. Given that the lifecycle of a FOT typically evolves through many phases, there are many issues to consider. In this report, the critical activities and tasks which are necessary to run a successful FOT are documented — in the form of a “FOT Implementation Plan” (FOTIP) — drawing on lessons learned from previous FOTs conducted in Europe, the United States, Japan, Australia and elsewhere.
