Subject: RDGT Testing
I have a question regarding RDGT testing for similar products. For example, if we have three similarly designed products that only vary with the number of installed circuit cards (internally in a rack for example), is it possible to only run one type through RDGT and then form conclusions on the reliability of the other two. If this is a valid process, which product would be the best one to evaluate ? The low, medium or high complexity product ? (my thinking is the high comlexity, but for cost reasons the medium may be the best). Any comments appreciated.
