Title: The Multi-Relationship Evaluation Design (MRED) Framework: Producing Evaluation Blueprints to Test Emerging, Advanced, and Intelligent Systems
Published: September 30, 2010
Abstract: This paper introduces the Multi-Relationship Evaluation Design (MRED) framework whose objective is to take uncertain input data and automatically output comprehensive evaluation blueprints complete with targeted evaluation elements. MRED is unique in that it characterizes the relationships among the evaluation elements and will address their uncertainties in addition to those tied to the evaluation input. These terms and their relationships will be applied in an example evaluation design of an emerging technology.
