A new test procedure is proposed for testing the constant failure rate against the alternative that the failure rate changes its trend, assuming that the proportion of the population that fails at or before the change-point of failure rate is known. The test procedure is based on the L-statistic theory and the power of the test is investigated for small samples by Monte Carlo experiment
