Enter planning information to determine the number of test units and how to allocate the units across stress levels for an accelerated life test.
The data you collect for an accelerated life test can be censored or uncensored. A time-censored test plan or failure-censored test plan often provides precise results while minimizing test costs. For more information, go to Data censoring.
For information on the distribution models and the transformations for the accelerating variable, go to Choose the appropriate model for accelerated life testing.
If you specify planning values for two percentiles, they must be at different stress levels. For more information, go to Values for estimation test plans and accelerated life test plans.
If you have previously used accelerated life tests for similar experiments, you can use historical estimates of the slope and intercept as planning values. For more information on the slope and intercept of accelerated test models, go to Choose the appropriate model for accelerated life testing.
