Subject: Reliability Growth Testing Mil-STD-189
I would like to ask if there is Reclassification of failures in RDGT. In RD, we allow to reclassify the failures if proven that the corrective actions are effective through further testing. Is it stated anywhere in MIL-189 that we can or cannot reclassify failures in RDGT. Secondly, if my RDGT target is to meet MTBF of 700 hrs, what is the recommended test duration required for RDGT. Thirdly, what distribution does AMSAA model follows? (e.g exponential or weibull?) is it applicable for complex mechanical and electronic system?
