Abstract:

This report documents a system-level Accelerated Reliability testing methodology. The method requires no specific assumptions of a Time-to-Failure distribution nor a stressperformance model. The methodology results in a multi- stress environmental test based on Design of Experiments, specifically a one- third fractional factorial design. The test data are modeled by the method of orthogonal polynomials. Although the data are collected in a high-stress environment, an operational performance estimate can established without extrapolating beyond the test data limits
