Developing a Life Cycle Environmental Profile (LCEP)
Instructor: Robert (Andy) Anderson

This 1-day course, designed for senior test engineers and program managers, is designed to introduce the process of developing the Life Cycle Environmental Profile  (LCEP).  The LCEP is a critical part of developing an environmental test program for hardware and systems.  All hardware will withstand a unique set of damaging environments that will challenge the performance and reliability of the hardware.  The LCEP offers a systematic approach to identifying and quantifying the damage potential of those environments.  The LCEP process also helps turn the damaging environments into an environmental test plan. This course is interactive and will include exercises. exercise booklets, and course notes.
