Subject: Reliability Demo
I would like to ask if we can incoporate RDGT results into Reliability Demonstraion? from my opinion i dont think so because RDGT does not tell us the demonstrated MTBF instead it tells us the instantaneous MTBF. In this case, we cannot make use of the RDGT data and continue frm there to carry out Reliability Demo right? ALthough the production unit and the prototype configuration is almost the same. Care to enlighten on this issue? Actually what is the difference between the demonstrated MTBF based on AMSAA model and demonstrated reliability based on Mil-STD 781 on Reliability Demonstration. Are they refering to the true MTBF of the system under test?
