Abstract : This handbook is intended as an educational tool aimed at engineers and managers who do work directly in reliability and who must communicate with other individuals who do likewise. It attempts to explain the basic techniques that are used in reliability analysis and how these techniques are used to solve real problems. The handbook is built around six important subject areas within reliability. These subject areas are; (1) Reliability of a single component versus multiple components, (2) The exponential and Weibull models, (3) Estimating reliability using test data, (4) Techniques for computing confidence intervals, (5) O. C. curves in reliability analysis, (6) Bayesian methods in reliability analysis. The pamphlet is structured to stress the techniques used within the subject areas. Examples are frequently used to show how these techniques are applied to solve real problems. The emphasis is on the practical application rather than on the theoretical discourse.
