This paper extends the validity of exponential tolerance and confidence limits, under certain restrictions, to classes of distributions based on failure rate. In particular, the usual exponential lower tolerance limit is shown to be conservative for the increasing failure rate class of distributions in the range of population coverages and confidence coefficients of practical interest. Conservative confidence limits are also obtained on the mean. Author
