Abstract:

The report describes a reliability demonstration method which requires the use of a reliability prediction with its measure of uncertainty, the coefficient of variation. When used in conjunction with a classical test plan, the BayesianClassical BC test is shown to reduce the number of test hours required to reach a decision. Three case histories compare results using the BC test with those of the original demonstration test. The report also describes the establishment of acceptreject criteria for use in applying the BC test method in situations where such decision criteria have not been preselected. Author
