The authors are promoting a technique called "multiple environment overstress tests," or MEOST, which they claim "can dramatically improve reliability right at the design stage, in hours, instead of waiting months and years to confirm unreliability in the field." They maintain that reliability is a design "responsibility, not a quality function" because design, they stress, has a tremendous effect on product cost and performance: they claim that 70-75% of cost and >90% of field failures are related to design.
