Why: The benefit of accelerated testing is to save time and money while quantifying the relationships between stress and performance along with identifying design and manufacturing deficiencies to get useful data quickly and at low cost.

When: Usually performed during the development of devices, components, or systems. Also applies to items that have been in service to obtain a metric needed to show how the item is performing under heavy loads. Accelerate testing is a useful method for solving old, nagging, problems within a production process.

Where: Used for correlating test results with real life conditions.
