Methods for product accelerated testing (IEC 62506:2023)

IEC 62506:2023 provides guidance on the application of various accelerated test techniques for measurement or improvement of item reliability. Identification of potential failure modes that can be experienced in the use of an item and their mitigation is instrumental to ensure dependability of an item. The object of the methods is to either identify potential design weakness or provide information on item reliability, or to achieve necessary reliability and availability improvement, all within a compressed or accelerated period of time. This document addresses accelerated testing of non-repairable and repairable systems. It can be used for probability ratio sequential tests, fixed duration tests and reliability improvement/growth tests, where the measure of reliability can differ from the standard probability of failure occurrence. This document also extends to present accelerated testing or production screening methods that would identify weakness introduced into the item by manufacturing error, which can compromise item reliability. Services and people are however not covered by this document.

Méthodes d'essais accélérés de produits (IEC 62506:2023)

L'IEC 62506:2023 fournit des recommandations pour l’application de diverses techniques d’essais accélérés permettant de mesurer ou d’améliorer la fiabilité de l’entité. L’identification des modes de défaillance potentiels qui peuvent être rencontrés lors de l’utilisation d’une entité donnée et la manière d’y remédier contribuent à assurer la sûreté de fonctionnement d’une entité. L’objectif de ces méthodes est soit d’identifier les faiblesses potentielles de la conception et fournir des informations sur la fiabilité de l’entité, soit d’atteindre l’amélioration nécessaire de la fiabilité et de la disponibilité, dans les deux cas en comprimant ou en accélérant la durée. Le présent document couvre les essais accélérés de systèmes non réparables et de systèmes réparables. Elle peut être utilisée pour des essais de rapport de probabilité progressifs, des essais à durée fixe et des essais d’amélioration/croissance de la fiabilité, lorsque la mesure de la fiabilité peut être différente de la probabilité normale d’occurrence de défaillance. Le présent document décrit également des méthodes d’essais accélérés ou de déverminage de la production qui permettraient d’identifier les faiblesses induites par une éventuelle erreur de fabrication de l’entité et qui peuvent de ce fait d’en compromettre la fiabilité. Les services et les personnes ne sont cependant pas couverts par le présent document.

Metode za pospešeno preskušanje proizvodov (IEC 62506:2023)

Standard IEC 62506:2023 ponuja napotke za uporabo različnih metod za pospešeno preskušanje za ugotavljanje ali izboljšanje zanesljivosti elementov. Določitev potencialnih zvrsti napak, do katerih lahko pride med uporabo elementa, in ublažitev le-teh je bistvenega pomena pri zagotavljanju zanesljivosti elementa. Cilj metode je določitev morebitnih zasnovnih slabosti, zagotavljanje podatkov o zanesljivosti elementa ali izvajanje potrebnih izboljšav zanesljivosti in razpoložljivosti – vse to v strnjenem oz. pospešenem časovnem obdobju. Ta dokument obravnava pospešeno preskušanje nepopravljivih in popravljivih sistemov. Uporablja se lahko za sekvenčne preskuse razmerja verjetnosti, preskuse s fiksnim trajanjem in preskuse izboljšanja/povečanja zanesljivosti, pri čemer se lahko stopnja zanesljivosti razlikuje od standardne verjetnosti pojava napake. Ta dokument prav tako obravnava trenutno pospešeno preskušanje ali metode za pregled proizvodnje, ki določijo slabosti elementa, ki so posledica proizvodne napake in ki bi lahko ogrozile zanesljivost elementa. Dokument ne zajema storitev in ljudi.
