For reliability of non-repairable systems, should we examine residuals to determine if model is appropriate?

Erich Gundlach, in his Reliability Analysis for Non-Repairable Systems webcast, explains that residuals should be examined. In this degradation example, he indicates that the residuals should be randomly distributed around 0. If not, the user may want to transform the data or use a nonlinear path.
