ABSTRACT: This handbook discusses several approaches for conducting a Field Reliability Performance Study (FRPS). The major objectives of an
FRPS are to analyze a product's performance in the field and to identify corrective action items that the manufacturer or user should
consider to improve the product's quality.
The handbook is primarily intended for use by Local Exchange Carriers (LECs) or other service providers who wish to run their own
studies. However, many of the principles apply to any FRPS administered by Telcordia or telecommunications equipment suppliers for
assessing the in-service performance of products/systems.
