Abstract:

The Building Block Technique is a simplified method for solving problems involving two normal Gaussian statistical variables. Thistechnique is intended for engineers who are not versed in statistics. Graphs and tables of precomputed statistical functions, and a catalogof these functions in the form of geometrical analogs building blocks are presented. The paper is self-contained s if the problem is statedusing the building blocks, the answer is the algebraic sum of their values. A new function, AB,T, the probability included in an offsetangle of the unit circular normal distribution, is introduced and tabulated to five decimal places.
