John is the author of the Product Validation article series.
In this series of articles, I will cover practical topics related to validating products for release into the marketplace. They will include such things as how to create a test profile from field data, how to accelerate that test while maintaining the integrity of the test (i.e., maintaining field correlation), how and when to best utilize qualitative test acceleration methods, and recommended strategies for demonstrating reliability. Additionally, I will offer some discussion related to the necessary disciplines of design and product validation, which I call Validation Rigor. For each, I will pull from many years of lessons learned while exercising these tools directly and while leading the reliability and validation function for a large company.
