Abstract:

A statistical method is developed for making an inference about a performance variate based on an observation of a screening variate. This is the typical situation in nondestructive testing where to measure the variable or primary interest would destroy or degrade the item under study. Typically the performance variable is lifetime. The non-destructive testing engineer must look at other related variables and based upon some mathematical analysis and engineering judgments, decide if the item can meet the minimum lifetime requirements.
