This 3-hour webinar, which costs $300, by Chet Haibel, presents some of the highlights from the two-day seminar of the same title.

Starting with the briefest review of the mathematics that describe them, this webinar lays out a few test strategies to save you time and money. Several methods of reducing test time, number of cycles, and / or the number of samples are shown.

The following will be presented: • Pass / fail tests of single-shot devices • Sudden death testing of sample groups • MTBF demonstrations • Sequential Probability Ratio Tests (SPRT) • Cycle tests of electro-mechanical components and assemblies • Censored testing • Other techniques .

For higher reliability and / or shorter tests, acceleration must be applied. This can be as simple as removing the dead time between cycles, but for even higher acceleration, stresses must be applied. Some well-known relations of stress versus life are presented: Arrhenius (temperature acceleration) with examples of activation energies, Inverse Power Laws such as the Coffin-Manson relation for low cycle fatigue, Peck’s modification of the Arrhenius relation to include effects of humidity, etc.

The webinar culminates with an example of an accelerated life test with embedded information gathering properties to deduce the dependence of life versus stress

Chet Haibel is an independent, full-time consultant in Reliability, Risk Management, Quality, and Lean Sigma after 12 years managing quality and reliability engineers in computer peripherals and medical devices in a QSR / ISO 13485 environment.
