Two methods for estimating the parameters of accelerated life testing models were
presented. First, the graphical method was illustrated using a probability plotting
method for obtaining the parameters of the life distribution. The parameters of the
life-stress relationship were then estimated graphically by linearizing the model.
However, not all life-stress relationships can be linearized. In addition, estimating the

parameters of each individual distribution leads to an accumulation of uncertainties,
depending on the number of failures and suspensions observed at each stress level.
Furthermore, the slopes (shape parameters) of each individual distribution are rarely
equal (common). Using the graphical method, one must estimate a common shape
parameter (usually the average) and repeat the analysis. By doing so, further
uncertainties are introduced on the estimates and these are uncertainties that cannot
be quantified. On the other hand, treating both the life distribution and the life-stress
relationship as one model, the parameters of that model can be estimated using the
complete likelihood function. Doing so, a common shape parameter is estimated for
the model, thus eliminating the uncertainties of averaging the individual shape
parameters. All uncertainties are accounted for in the form of confidence bounds,
which are quantifiable because they are obtained based on the overall model.
