=> Equipment reliability test is suitable for new product development or unusual operation conditions => in practise the results of the reliability test (e.g. TBSF/MTBSF, TTMc/MTTMc, ...) could be derived often from field-data (if available and analysable!) '=> field-data are mostly closer to the real operation (service & maintenance) conditions * based on withdrawn IEC 60605-1 Amend. 1 (1982)
