A new age-sensitive method (ASM) estimates the order-number of failures in reliability data with suspended items. ASM considers the age of the items at suspension, and is thus more sensitive than methods which consider only the sequence of events. ASM indicates greater reliability in response to increased successful performance data, even when the sequence of failures and suspensions remains unchanged
