Development of Accelerated Reliability/Durability Testing Standardization as a Component of Trends in Development Accelerated Reliability Testing (ART/ADT) 2013-01-0151

There are no standards that directly consider practical reliability testing technology (methods and equipment). This void needs to be filled. The SAE G-11 division has approved the development of six new standards to fill this void. This paper discusses these six standards: 1) Reliability Test-Glossary; 2) Reliability Testing-Strategy; 3) Reliability Testing-Procedures; 4) Reliability Testing-Equipment; 5) Reliability Testing-Statistical Criteria for Comparison of Reliability Testing Results and Field Results; 6) Reliability Testing-Collection, Calculation, and Statistical Analysis of Reliability Testing Data, Development Recommendations for Improvement of Test Subject Reliability, Durability, and Maintainability.
These standards are planned as a basis for obtaining the information needed to accurately predict usage, reliability, durability, quality, supportability and maintainability throughout the life-cycle, as well as life-cycle costs in real-world conditions, and to reduce the possibility of conflicts, duplications, and incorrect interpretations either expressed or implied elsewhere in the literature.
