Abstract:

The study investigates the role of reliability demonstrations and current demonstration techniques. It explores problem areas of the current techniques and some of the solutions which have been proposed such as improved realistic environments for the demonstration and the use of Bayesian techniques to incorporate prior information into the test design. The study is restricted to reliability demonstrations for equipments such as electronics and avionics, which exhibit a constant failure rate exponential distribution.
