This section discusses the technical issues that arise when implementing an
ESS program. These issues are related, and decisions concerning them should be
made in an interactive manner.
ESS is a manufacturing process and should not be confused with a test.
Ideally, a screening program should be designed for the system (equipment
unique) to which it is to be applied. Such custom designing may require the
expenditure of resources to perform additional analyses. Baseline screening
parameters have been provided in this section and should serve as a starting
point only for custom designing a profile unique to the particular item. The
contractor should not implement screening at or below baseline screening
parameters without prior Government approval.
