The reliability allocation problem has previously been solved by methods other than the classical optimization methods. The thesis brings together and compares three allocation models that are based on optimization methods. It was found that dynamic programming gives the optimal solution to the allocation problem. The model based on Lagrange multipliers gave a solution that was within 0.5 of the optimal solution given by dynamic programming. The linear programming algorithm gave a solution that was within 0.6 of the optimal solution.
