Environmental Stress Screening

Used to describe the process of applying thermal cycling or vibration to a UUT in order to detect defects. Environmental Stress Screening allows the accelerated detection of weaknesses, which would not usually manifest themselves as faults until a product is partically through its service life. Due to the high cost of ESS it is typically only applied to high value, safety critical components; with a common area being electronics for aerospace and defense applications.
