It introduces a hybrid strategy to link the tailoring and stimulation test philosophies into an integrated philosophy with implementation examples. A methodology to create generic environmental requirements through Weibull analysis of historical databases is presented. The implications in the hybrid philosophy are discussed along with reliability demonstration considerations. Examples of product requirements are provided for vibration and thermal environments.
