The purpose of the study is to evaluate the accuracy of a procedure used to compute an estimate of the lower 1001-gamma confidence limit for reliability of system of independent components connected in logical series. The procedure takes a Bayesian approach and uses test data on the individual components where the sample sizes may be unequal and no knowledge of the component failure distribution is needed. A computer simulation is used to generate test failure data and to compute estimates for the lower 1001-gamma confidence limit on system reliability. Author
