Military specifications contain numerous requirements for qualification of equipment for dynamic environments. Cost and schedule effective application of these specifications require tailoring of these test requirements. This paper presents a technique for tailoring dynamic environment tests based on equipment response characteristics. The dynamic response theory is explained and applied to a procedure for comparing the relative severity of dynamic environmental tests. The procedure is shown using the example of an electronic assembly.
