Abstract:

This study was made to investigate the hypothesis that an economic analysis can be used as the basis for establishing reliability requirements. The economic basis for such an analysis is established and the AGREE reliability cost model and the WSEIAC reliability allocation model are reviewed. The problem of determining cost reliability relationships because of the lack of historical data and the problem of representing the value of reliability in an analysis are discussed. Finally, an economic analysis is made of the APN-159 radar altimeter, using historical data. The conclusion is that an economic analysis can be used as the basis for establishing reliability requirements of military weapon systems and equipment. Author
