Accelerated Life Testing

Reliability Engineering Services

Reduce test time and mitigate the risk of field failures

What is Accelerated Life Testing?

Before your company launches an electronic product, you have to think of everything: What would happen to your company’s reputation if your product underperformed? If your product failed, could it cause physical harm?

Product reliability is essential for success, and Accelerated Life Testing makes it possible to answer these questions before your launch. This process accelerates testing by increasing stress on a device to induce and accumulate damage faster than in the field. From there, you can better understand the cause of the failure. Ultimately, you can accurately simulate the extreme circumstances a device may experience in a real-world environment, leading to improved product performance, faster time to market, and reduced warranty costs. 

We leverage our relationships with over 1,000 companies across multiple electronics markets to expose design weaknesses and identify solutions to those inefficiencies. Our expert reliability team determines which stresses and tests to apply, how to set appropriate test parameters, and how to interpret the results. This leads to efficient, accurate, and streamlined remedies for any design flaws — and improved product performance for your company.

Case Study

Ansys Develops Test Plan to Verify Reliability of Gas Flow Valves

Data gathered from accelerated life tests performed by Ansys RES provided the client with invaluable information to support the critical process of replacing equipment while maintaining operations and ensuring the long-term deployment of field equipment. The client now employs the personalized test plan developed by Ansys RES, enabling them to expediently validate suppliers and the robustness of new equipment. 


Ansys has been a valuable resource

“As the favorite wearable of pro athletes around the world, Whoop technology must be very robust under a wide variety of expected and unexpected conditions. Ansys has been the perfect partner in our development process. From design reviews that were very insightful and allowed us to reduce BOM cost while still being reliable, to being a turnkey partner in reliability testing (test planning, test execution, and test result interpretation), we could not have been more pleased with their performance.  We plan on continuing to utilize Ansys RES’ one-of-a-kind services as we develop new technology to meet our customers’ needs.”
