Abstract : The objective of the program described in this report was to measure the reliability of two Bureau of Ships' electronic equipments as ex perienced in a laboratory installation (Inherent Reliability) and to compare the results of this measurement with the Operational Reliability of the same equipments. The operational reli ability was determined from data collected in earlier reliability programs. The inherent reliability of the equipments was determined from analysis of test data collected in the laboratory. Equipment design analysis from a reliability viewpoint was valuable in establish ing the correlation between operational and inherent reliability. The results of the com parison indicate that field reliability is directly estimable from results of factory floor testing performed as described. (Author)
