Abstract:

A comparison of several techniques is presented for determining upper confidence levels for a system failure rate. A series system of components with exponential failure rates is examined. Classical computational techniques are compared with Bayesian techniques in determining the upper confidence level of a system failure rate. A sensitivity analysis is conducted on several of the parameters as part of the comparison. Author
