Sterling Service Spotlight | Performance, Durability & Reliability Testing

Sterling provides performance, durability, and reliability testing as a service to ensure all these factors meet the customer’s standards. The different types of performance, durability, and reliability testing options are listed below. Read the article below to find out more about this service. Sterling Performance Engines also offers many different services that can be found here.

Performance Testing
Performance Testing covers a broad range of testing, usually a product, part, material, or system’s ability to meet its design, engineering, or functional specifications and requirements, including any required environmental conditions in which the product, part, material, or system will be used.

Durability Testing
Durability testing is the duration of time a product, part, material, or system can meet its performance requirements. e.g. lifetime span. Durability testing is generally considered a subset of reliability testing.

Reliability Testing
Reliability testing can generally be looked at as any interruptions in usage or performance during the life span of a product, part, material, or system.

Good products seek to minimize the unexpected interruptions in performance throughout the duration of the typical customer experience. So good testing looks to maximize, catch, or expose these unexpected interruptions in performance during product evaluation, and the conditions in which these interruptions occur.

You will have the most reliable data and confidence in your product evaluation with Sterling Performance because we are experts at product evaluations, testing, and environmental simulations, making us very the best at setting up testing conditions for the Performance, Durability, and Reliability of your products, parts, or materials.
