Abstract : The report contains a brief summary of aspects of the Maximus reliability point and interval estimation technique as it has been applied to the reliability of a device whose surveillance tests contain a succession of stressful environments. The lower confidence limits appear to be ultra conservative. It is argued that the serial system approach to modeling of the cumulative effect of the stresses is inappropriate. Some alternative modeling is suggested. Some numerical comparisons are offered.
