Revision of IEST’s Environmental Stress Screening Publication is Here
(July 27, 2016) IEST, the leading technical association for scientists and engineers in the field of reliability and environmental test, has announced the release of IEST-RP-PR001.2: Management and Technical Guidelines for the Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) Process.
“The revised document, published in July 2016, contains an up-to-date consensus of recommended best practices through the collaboration of industry experts in IEST Product Reliability Division Working Group 001, led by consultants William Boswell and Michael Roy, and Dustin Aldridge of Raytheon Missile Systems,” the company explained, “PR001.2 assists in the development and implementation of technically-sound, cost-effective stress screening programs.
It addresses the military, government, and commercial industries, “providing an overview of the techniques and considerations needed to define a viable Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) program—covering ESS fundamentals, equipment and setup, and procedures. […] The updated version of IEST-PR001 further stresses the importance of understanding the capability of the design through design characterization, and it includes updates on defining the common stress environment severities used in ESS considering physics of failure.”
Print and electronic versions of IEST-RP-PR001.2: Management and Technical Guidelines for the Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) Process are available in the bookstore, here.
