In this paper, graphical methods are presented for analyzing accelerated life test data with the inverse power law model, when all test units are run to failure. The inverse power law model is described, and graphical methods for estimating its parameters from such complete data are given. These methods are illustrated with accelerated test data on time to breakdown of an insulating fluid. While the methods are presented with the inverse power law model, they can be used for analyzing many other accelerated life test situations. These methods are presented so that they can be used by individuals with a limited statistical background.
