Abstract:

The paper presents the current status of reliability methodology, and describes its practical impact. Mathematical models of complex systems are analyzed, together with the combinational probability necessary to calculate the system reliability, or bounds on the system reliability. Component time to failure distributions are studied and lower confidence bounds obtained. Models of underlying physical processes which induce time to failure distributions are also investigated.
