Reliability Testing

Please check back soon!  We are still developing this page!


Testing has long been utilized within engineering in order to gather data under controlled conditions. Testing is critical in reliability engineering in order to identify failure modes and mechanisms, assess performance or ensure a safe design. Many different types of testing can be utilized, depending on the desired goal and application. Additionally, reliability engineers are particularly interested in designing test plans that provide sufficient results, while minimizing test time.

Accelerated Testing Strategies

Accelerated Life Testing (ALT) is one of the most important topics for any reliability engineer. Few reliability engineers know more than the basics of a few techniques. Most test people do not know the wide range of testing applications that do exist. ALT theory is often covered by journal articles showing a few isolated applications, techniques or explanations to existing techniques
