چکیده

< p>Accelerated Life Testing (ALT) is very important in evaluating the reliability of highly reliable products. According to ALT procedure, products undergo higher stress levels than normal conditions to reduce the failure times. ALTs have been studied for various conditions and stresses. In addition to common stress such as temperature and humidity, random usage can also be considered as another stress that can cause failure. Design of ALT plan for products which are exposed to random usage process have not been studied in the literature. Therefore, a procedure for designing ALT plan for these products is studied in this paper. To do so, hazard rate of products is formulated based on the random usage process and other stresses. Then, the variance of the hazard rate is estimated over a predetermined time period. Optimum stress levels and the number of units at every stress level are obtained by numerically minimizing the variance of the hazard rate estimate. Numerical example and sensitivity analysis are performed to show the application and robustness of the model to parameter deviations. The results show that the proposed procedure is robust to parameter changes and can be used for ALT planning of products under random usage.

Design of Optimum Simple Step-Stress Accelerated Life Testing Plans

Accelerated life testing (ALT) is widely conducted to obtain failure-time data in a much shorter time and to make inference about reliability at normal conditions. The accuracy of the reliability prediction is dependent on well-designed ALT plans. A stepstress ALT allows the test condition to change at a given time or upon the occurrence of a specified number of failures. In this paper, we prop...

Optimal Design for Accelerated Life Testing with Simple Step-Stress Plans

Abstract: This paper presents the optimal design for accelerated life testing (ALT) experiments when step-stress plans with Type I censoring are performed. We adopt a generalized Khamis-Higgins model for the effect of changing stress levels. It is assumed that the lifetime of a test unit follows a Weibull distribution, and both its shape and scale parameters are functions of the stress level. T...

Accelerated life testing design using geometric process for pareto distribution

In many of the studies concerning Accelerated life testing (ALT), the log linear function between life and stress which is just a simple re-parameterization of the original parameter of the life distribution is used to obtain the estimates of original parameters but from the statistical point of view, it is preferable to work with the original parameters instead of developing inferences for the...

Bayesian Accelerated Life Testing

In this paper a Bayesian approach for accelerated life testing will be considered. It will be assumed that the failure times at the different stress levels follow a Weibull distribution and exponential distribution, respectively. In accelerated life tests, the components are exposed to an environment that is more severe that the usual environment, such that the components will fail in a shorter...
