Abstract : The purpose of this technical report is to discuss the problem of testing for reliability as a product quality feature, both for acceptance and assurance of reliability measurements, for the case of one-of-a-kind products when uninterrupted operations is a very important consideration. The introduction discusses this problem as distinct from the quantity production case and presents the need for product quality assurance. Under definition of terms, working concepts are presented and reliability is singled out as the principal contributor towards product quality. The ability of the product to meet designated quality requirements or its reliability is dependent principally upon the product's design. Any deviation from the products designated quality due to manufacturing/assembly deficiencies can be taken care of by a quality control/zero defects program. Any deviations due to aging problems are predictable and can be solved by maintenance. The reliability of the product is not considered affected by these latter two causes - manufacturing/assembly or aging effects.
