Abstract:

Most reliability references place heavy emphasis on the mathematics of measuring reliability and relatively little emphasis on the actions which contribute to a products reliability. This booklet emphasizes how reliability is achieved during the military systems acquisition process. It is aimed at those involved in project management and others who require an introductory reference of reliability principles and practices. After a brief discussion of reliability definitions and concepts, the booklet traces reliability program efforts beginning with the setting of realistic requirements and continuing through design, development, and production.
