Abstract:

A computer model has been prepared to assist in the analysis of reliability test data. Essentially, the model computes point estimates and confidence limits for mission reliability of components, subsystems, and systems from component failure data. The main features of the model are Performs goodness-of-fit tests to determine the best fit probability distribution of component failure times Computes maximum likelihood estimates of distribution parameters Computes point estimates of reliability for the renewal nonconstant failure rate case Computes lower confidence limits for component, subsystem, and system reliability for the constant failure rate case.
