Use Demonstration Test Plan to determine the sample size or testing time needed to demonstrate, with some level of confidence, that the reliability exceeds a given standard.
Minitab provides an m-failure test plan for substantiation and reliability testing. If more than m failures occur in an m-failure test, the test fails.
For example, the reliability goal for a turbine engine combustor is a 1st percentile of at least 2000 cycles. An engineer uses a demonstration test plan to determine the number of combustors needed to demonstrate the reliability goal using a 1-failure test plan.
