The paper studies some ranking and selection procedures also called multiple-decision procedures which lend themselves to applications in reliability problems. Some of the procedures discussed are in a sense distribution free, while others assume a specific distributional form of the underlying observations. In addition, a parametric procedure for selecting a subset containing the gamma population with the largest guaranteed life is introduced. A comparison is then made between this parametric procedure and several others which are based on the ranks of the observations. This comparison is in terms of the expected number of population included in the selected subset. Author
