Research detailed in the bulk of this report was motivated by a critical inquiry into the characteristics of three methods for reliability assessment proposed by personnel of the Rock Island Arsenal. These three procedures had been developed somewhat empirically and an evaluation of their appropriateness and precision in the context of application to highly reliable systems appeared to be desirable. In the course of this evaluation it was found necessary to develop a theoretically sound reliability model and an accurate confidence bound procedure to form a basis for the required comparisons. A detailed discussion of the performance of the three methods in light of the results developed in this report is presented.
