During the last century the average life span has more than doubled but the probability of surviving for 100 years has hardly changed because of uncovering other failure modes. For old systems that have operated many multiples of their design life, there is no sign that all the failure modes are ever solved or even found. For this reason, systems that involve safety must be exposed to accelerated testing well beyond their design life to uncover unknown failure modes. The manufacturer must test well beyond the age of the customer's fleet leaders to assure that catastrophic modes are eliminated.

Components with infant mortality are like red wine: the longer you leave it alone, the better it gets. 0 Implies Random Failures ) By random we mean the failures are indepeudent of time. These failure modes are ageless. An old part is as good as a new one if its failure mode is random.
