A review and a critical evaluation of a representative class of state-of-the-art models for ultrahigh reliability prediction is presented. This evaluation naturally leads us to a new model for ultrahigh reliability prediction now under development. The new model combines the flexibility and accuracy of simulation with the speed of analytic models.
