Accelerated degradation testing has considerable significance in reliability engineering due to its ability to provide accurate estimation of lifetime charachteristic of highly reliable systems within a relatively short testing time period. The measured date from particular experiments at high stress conditions are extrapolated, through a technically reasonable statistical model, to obtain estimates of certain reliability properties under normal use levels. In this work we consider repeated…

In recent years, more attention has been paid prominently to accelerated degradation testing in order to characterize accurate estimation of reliability properties for systems that are designed to

Optimal Stress Levels in Accelerated Degradation Testing for Various Degradation Models

Accelerated degradation tests are used to provide accurate estimation of lifetime characteristics of highly reliable products within a relatively short testing time. Data from particular tests at

Optimal time plan in accelerated degradation testing

Many highly reliable products are designed to function for years without failure. For such systems accelerated degradation testing may provide significance information about the reliability

Optimum degradation test sampling plan for the Wiener process



Methods for planning repeated measures accelerated degradation tests

Repeated measures accelerated degradation tests can sometimes be used to assess product or component reliability when one would expect few or even no failures during a study. Such tests can be used

Reliability inference for field conditions from accelerated degradation testing

An ADT model obtained from constant-stress ADT experiments is extended to predict field reliability by considering the stress variations, and the accuracy of the procedure is verified by simulation using various distributions of field stresses.

Global planning of accelerated degradation tests based on exponential dispersion degradation models

The accelerated degradation test (ADT) is an efficient tool for assessing the lifetime information of highly reliable products. However, conducting an ADT is very expensive. Therefore, how to conduct

Optimal design of accelerated degradation tests based on Wiener process models

Optimal accelerated degradation test (ADT) plans are developed assuming that the constant-stress loading method is employed and the degradation characteristic follows a Wiener process. Unlike the

A literature review on planning and analysis of accelerated testing for reliability assessment

Different types of test planning strategies are categorized, and their drawbacks and the research trends are provided to assist researchers and practitioners in conducting new research in this area.

Optimum Allocation Rule for Accelerated Degradation Tests With a Class of Exponential-Dispersion Degradation Models

It is demonstrated that a three-level compromise plan with small proportion allocation in the middle stress, in general, is a good strategy for ADT allocation, and the penalties of using nonoptimum allocation rules are addressed.

Statistical inference of a time-to-failure distribution derived from linear degradation

In the study of semiconductor degradation, records of transconductance loss or threshold voltage shift over time are useful in constructing the cumulative distribution function (cdf) of the time
