Abstract : It is shown that (1) achieving and maintaining a satisfactory over-all reliability program is largely a matter of planning and organization, (2) the reliability test program should be started when the missile is in the preliminary design stages and should be continued through missile development and production, and (3) appropriate test priorities should be established within the test program. Organizational concepts and tools are suggested that may aid in solving the guided missile reliability problem economically and within a reasonable time.
