In previous work, we have shown that optimizing the number of site observations leads to more defect detection. However, for increasingly difficult defects, optimizing patterns for balanced random excitation also enhances test effectiveness. We can also reduce the effect of undetected defects by choosing tests that minimize the likelihood of field failures.
