Abstract:

A general procedure for obtaining a direct estimate of confidence in the success of a process is developed. The measure of confidence is an expected value of reliability based on a Bayesian a posteriori distribution. A flexible model of the a priori distribution permits the combination of a priori estimates with the results of either attribute success or failure, or variate measurement testing. A self-contained applications section summarizes the methods of computation. Author
