Abstract

This article describes an approach to the methodology of selecting a representative region from the multitude of input influences based upon input (output) influences simulation. The result leads to successful accelerated testing. The concept of representative region selection is then extended to real-life analysis techniques to establish the characteristics of the critical input (or output) processes. This leads to the possibility of determining one field region that is a typical system characteristic of a wide variety of field influences. This methodology is described by four basic steps.
