Companies use specialized testing laboratories to perform the tests, where the capacity of the test stations is limited. This is a major restriction for reliability tests. Different testing strategies will vary in cost and time, so an optimum strategy for the reliability test would be desirable, to obtain the list expensive and fastest results. In this presentation, findings and summary are presented for the optimum testing strategy determination, assuming components under consideration are mechanical and non-repairable.
