Fundamental questions that arise in the certification of readiness for dedicated test and evaluation of software-intensive systems are addressed. They concern what comprises production-representative or production software, what are the software impacts on dedicated system operational test readiness, how software impacts should be considered in the certification process, and what are the retest/recertification requirements associated with software changes/modifications. A paradigm is proposed that answers these questions and outlines guidelines for implementing a solution to these issues. The paradigm is based on existing test and evaluation events and uses a combination of defense and commercial standards and definitions to propose criteria for software certification and retest or regression test.<>
