Cha (2006) proposed a new stochastic model for the accelerated burn-in procedure based on the concept of virtual age. In the current paper, we discuss the basics of this approach in more detail, justify some assumptions and extend the model to the case of proportional (additive) hazards during burn-in. For each model, we also obtain upper bounds for optimal accelerated burn-in times.
