Abstract:

This report documents the results of an RADCRome Air Development Center Systems Reliability and Engineering Branch in-house study on reliability growth testing. The study involved examination of DoD policy regarding this form of testing, an extensive literature search on techniques and applications as well as consultation with Air Force reliability experts on the subject. The results address a general overview of models and techniques applied with particular attention to unique approaches found in the literature. Numerous current and past Air Force applications are cited indicating the range of possible approaches. The report concludes by addressing many of the questions regarding reliability growth testing expressed by those skeptical of it.
