Abstract:

Whenever extensive test data collected under non-environmental conditions must be used to infer results valid under environmental conditions, the problem of estimation of a correction factor to transform non-environmental results into environmental ones will arise. The ratio of mean times under environmental and non-environmental conditions was termed the K-factor. This report presents a solution to the problem of building exact confidence intervals for the K-factor for the case when time is measured in cycles. This was the remaining open question in the problem of point and interval estimation of the K-factor.
