Subject: Reliability Testing Comparison (RDGT/HALT/HASS/PRAT etc.)
Does anybody know of a website or reference that discusses or compares the benefits or disadvantages of the following types of reliability testing: - Reliability Development Growth Testing (RDGT) - HALT/HASS (Highly Accelerated Life Test/Highly Accelerated Stress Screening) - Production Reliability Acceptance Testing (PRAT) - etc. What I am looking for is something that would help decide when one method would be more advantageous or cost effective over another, and would possibly yield meaningful results.
