The purpose of this study is to investigate the electronic equipment component burn-in system reliability improvement technique to determine the economic factors that should be considered when assigning component burn-in times in an economically optimal manner. The pertinent economic factors are found to be the procurement costs of the components, the costs of burning-in the components, and the costs associated with a failure of the equipment under consideration in an operational situation.
