Many statistical methods and techniques are available for planning the integration of special reliability and maintainability tests into a particular program. The overall philosophy of test planning propounded here provides maximum needed information in the shortest time at the least cost within the specified time, cost, performance, reliability, and maintainability constraints of a particular program's requirements.
General test planning methods are presented and illustrated. Special types of reliability/maintainability tests and some applicable life distributions are given. Three types of reliability-time tests for demonstration test planning are given and discussed in some detail.
