Abstract
ENVIRONMENTAL STRESS SCREENING (ESS) IS THE TAILORED APPLICATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSES TO MANUFACTURED END ITEMS TO IDENTIFY AND ELIMINATE DEFECTIVE, ABNORMAL, OR MARGINAL PARTS AND MANUFACTURING DEFECTS. THE APPLICATION OF ESS TO ONE-SHOT ORDNANCE DEVICES LIKE FUZES, SAFE/ARMING DEVICES AND TIMERS IS COMPLICATED AND TOO OFTEN IGNORED OR INEFFECTUAL. THIS PROPOSAL SHOWS A WAY OF RELATING ESS PROCESSES TO PREVALENT STOCKPILE FAILURES SO THAT EFFECTIVE ESS PROCESSES CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED. THE METHODOLOGY DEVELOPED WILL BE DOCUMENTED FOR FUTURE USE AS A SET OF GROUND RULES.
