The critical time is the time point as the failure rate starts to decrease and also as the mean residual lifetime starts to increase. The estimated critical time is useful for determining the duration of a burn-in process. The method for estimating the critical time of the failure rate for lognormal lifetime distribution is discussed. A single time censored data is used as a example for illustration.
