This paper deals with simple constant-stress Partially Accelerated Life Tests (PALT) with Type-II censoring. It is assumed that the lifetime at design stress has a Weibull distribution. Statistically optimal PALT plans are developed such that the Generalized Asymptotic Variance (GAV) of the Maximum-Likelihood Estimators (MLEs) of the model parameters at design stress is minimized. For illustration, simulation studies are introduced. (orig.)
