An Eclectic Approach to Long Life Reliability Measurement 700605
The problem of measuring the reliability of a long life system is evaluated in situations where test data is limited due to cost and schedule constraints. Five advanced techniques are presented that will aid in the solution of this problem. Relationships between generic components and measurement techniques are outlined and the benefit of combining techniques to further magnify the test information is emphasized. Finally, two methods that will determine a system estimate from the various component measurement techniques are presented and compared.
