Acceleration Factors with Examples
When conducting an accelerated life test it is essential to carefully consider the acceleration factor (AF). Like warp drives shortening distance, accelerated life tests (ALT) attempt to shorten time. Think warp factor and acceleration factor as being similar, well sort of.

Let’s explore the crucial element of any ALT. What is AF? How is it used? And how do we know we have a ‘good’ one? There are plenty of problems and pitfalls, let’s avoid those and interpret our ALTs well.

Plus, let’s examine a few example AFs in a range of situations, plus a brief discussion around how to create a meaningful AF on your own.

Let’s talk about risk, risk management, and our role in identifying and mitigating risks. Plus, let’s explore how reliability engineering tools fit into the larger risk management processes many organizations have in place.

There are a few ways to deal with risk. From ignoring potential risks until forced into action, to anticipating risks and preparing responses, just in case. We will do a bit of both, as we will not anticipate all potential risks, there are still surprises out there. Yet, the better we are with identifying risks, understanding our roles and responsibilities, we can eliminate or mitigate risks well.
