This example appears in the Accelerated Life Testing Data Analysis Reference book.

The following data were collected after testing twelve electronic devices at different temperature and humidity conditions:


Using ALTA, the following results were obtained:

[math]\begin{align} \widehat{\beta }=\ & 5.874395 \\ & & \\ \widehat{A}=\ & 0.000060 \\ & & \\ \widehat{b}=\ & 0.280599 \\ & & \\ \widehat{\phi}=\ & 5630.329851 \end{align}\,\![/math]

A probability plot for the entered data is shown next.

Probability plots at the tested combinations.

Note that three lines are plotted because there are three combinations of stresses, namely, (398K, 0.4), (378K, 0.8) and (378K, 0.4).

Given the use stress levels, time estimates can be obtained for a specified probability. A Life vs. Stress plot can be obtained if one of the stresses is kept constant. For example, the following picture shows a Life vs. Temperature plot at a constant humidity of 0.4.
