This paper describes the first phase of a study into reliability demonstration test procedures as applied to short production runs of large and complex Naval equipments. The approach was derived after a study of current test procedures and the evaluation of the operational performance of selected equipments. The new method requires equipment manufacturers to be assessed for their capability to recognize and minimize systematic failure modes. Capable manufacturers can then produce equipment with the desired reliability characteristics.
