Manufacturers have been struggling for years with the necessity to produce high quality products that do not fail once they have been delivered to the customer. Auditing for stated reliability expectations can create a good product – but exceeding these standards will create a superior product. HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Test), HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screen), and HASA (Highly Accelerated Stress Audit) are intensive methods used by the world’s top manufacturers to expose products to extreme environmental conditions, improve design and process weaknesses, and improve product quality – all before the product is introduced to the market.

In recent years, much useful methodology has been developed in accelerated testing–this book makes it available to practitioners. Many products last so long that life testing at design conditions is impractical. However, these products can be life-tested at high-stress conditions to yield failures quickly. Such testing saves much time and money–and analyses of data from an accelerated test yield needed information on product life at design (low stress) conditions. Presents practical, modern, statistical methods for accelerated testing including test models, analyses of data and plans for testing. Each topic is self-contained for easy reference. Coverage is broad and detailed enough to serve as a text or reference. Contains many real test examples along with data analyses.

This classic text has now been completely revised and updated, making it an ideal introductory course in reliability for a wide range of engineering qualifications, including City & Guilds 8030 and HNC/Ds. A new chapter focuses on the role of the microprocessor and microcomputer controller, and the use of algorithms for monitoring system performance. The addition of numerous problems, selfcheck questions and exam-style questions makes this an extremely useful book for courses with an element of independent study.
