Accelerated Test Methods for Ground and Aerospace Vehicle Development

Engineers and managers involved with product development are constantly challenged to reduce time to market, minimize warranty costs, and increase product quality. With less and less time for testing, the need for effective accelerated test procedures has never been greater.


This course covers the benefits, limitations, processes, and applications of several proven accelerated test methods including accelerated reliability, step stress, FSLT (Full System Life Test), FMVT® (Failure Mode Verification Testing), HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing), and HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screening). It is designed for anyone involved in product design, life testing, reliability testing and validation for passenger cars, light trucks, heavy duty, off-highway or aerospace vehicles, including reliability engineers, validation engineers, design engineers and their managers. Users or purchasers of testing or engineering services will also find this course to be valuable.

Based on the popular classroom seminar, this course offers more than 10 hours of instruction divided into fourteen modules; a coordinated handbook; and an electronic copy of the instructor's book, Accelerated Testing and Validation, which includes numerous hands-on exercises and analytical spreadsheets.

By participating in this course, you will be able to:
  • Choose the accelerated test method for a given application
  • Analyze accelerated testing results
  • Explain how to accelerate your current test methods
  • Explain how to accelerate your validation program
  • Adjust accelerated test programs for business situations
  • Describe how product development cycles can be reduced from 18 to six months
