The number of intelligent and advanced technologies in the manufacturing, military and homeland security industries is increasing. Evaluating these technologies is a critical step in their development cycle. Test designers have put forth considerable effort in creating methods to accelerate the test-plan development process. The Multi-Relationship Evaluation Design (MRED) methodology is an automatic test plan generator. MRED collects multiple inputs, processes them interactively with a test designer and outputs evaluation blueprints that specify key test-plan characteristics. This paper describes MRED's process and presents the mathematical representations used by MRED and the stakeholder preference handling strategy. A robot arm is the example used to demonstrate MRED.
