Predicting the performance of one-shot devices with long periods of dormant storage poses unique challenges to the analyst. In this paper, we describe a model of performance change during storage and the implications of this model for life cycle evaluation. The performance model includes different classes of unknown temporal behaviors that must be considered when designing a monitoring program. We discuss the use of tolerance limits to design and evaluate different monitoring programs in the face of unknown temporal behavior.
