ln R(t) =

ln (1-C) / n*((AF*Test Time)/Field Time)

R(t0) = reliability at time "t0"


t0= design life or the life of the part the reliability to be demonstrated at
n = sample size
T = total test time of each part
= Weibull shape parameter or Weibull slope
C = statistical confidence level specified in percentage
