Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to forecast the reliable storage life of a certain kind of equipment under the normal stress level.

Design/methodology/approach

Through the stepping stress acceleration life test and the failure mechanism analysis, this paper aims to confirm the stress level for the stepping stress acceleration life test of a certain kind of equipment and establish the data processing mathematical model and storage life forecasting method.

Findings

The stress level for the stepping stress acceleration life test of a certain kind of equipment is confirmed and the data processing mathematical model and storage life forecasting method is established.

Research limitations/implications

Availability of data is the main limitation affecting which model will be applied.

Practical implications

Useful advice for products' storage life forecasting.

Originality/value

The paper presents a new approach to product storage life estimation.
