6.2.5 Description of Method(s)
for Reliability Demonstration
It is not enough to merely specify the reliability requirement.
One must also delineate the test(s) that will be performed to verify whether
the specified requirement has been met. In essence, the element of reliability
specification should answer the following questions:
(1) How the equipment/system will be tested.
The specified test conditions, e.g., environmental
conditions, test measures, length of test, equipment operating conditions,
accept/reject criteria, test reporting requirements,
(2) Who will perform the
(3) When the tests will be performed.
(4) Where the tests will be performed.
Examples of several forms of reliability specifications are
given in Figure 6.2-4.
