Subject: MTBF Demonstration
What are some alternate ways to demonstrate MTBF on computer boards and systems? The traditional method is to run the boards/systems for a certain amount of hours and divide by the failures. I am looking at different methods (say ESS / HALT) that could you extrapolate MTBF from.
