Inland Testing Laboratories, in its Reliability Test Section, is designing and constructing a test facility for simultaneously testing more than 70,000 resistors, diodes and transistors, plus a substantial, but not yet determined quantity of other components. The quantities of components to be tested are extremely large and test measurements are to be made frequently therefore a conventional test system, using manual techniques for operation and measurement, is totally impractical. For this reason, a fully automated reliability test facility with provision for data-taking and recording is being designed. A program of Acceptance Testing is also being undertaken. This program includes the testing of a sampling of components from each lot manufactured, to verify compliance with Univacs component specifications. Related to, yet separate from the Acceptance Testing Program, is a program of Vendor Surveillance. This activity is conducted by Inland at vendors plants and includes observation of manufacturing processes, collection of data related to performance, characteristics, establishment of a system of lot identity and observation of the vendors acceptance test procedures.
