Abstract:

The fourfold purpose of the paper is to Present a general discussion of the concepts involved in reliability and life testing Discuss some of the currently available life and reliability testing procedures based on the exponential, Weibull, and normal distributions Develop two methods for evaluating the error incurred when an incorrect underlying failure distribution is assumed Present some general results obtained by applying the error evaluation techniques developed.
