When is Acceleration Unnecessary in a Degradation Test ?

  title={When is Acceleration Unnecessary in a Degradation Test ?},
  author={Lanqing Hong and Ye Zhisheng},
Acceleration is widely used in reliability tests to yield sufficient reliability information within a short time frame. From the statistical point of view, the cost of acceleration is that additional parameters are needed to link the accelerating variables to the failure process. When the increase of statistical information is insufficient to compensate the introduction of additional parameters, acceleration is inefficient. This scenario may be rare in a life test, as acceleration yields more… CONTINUE READING
