Abstract : A method is presented for constructing system reliability using component failure data when the sample sizes for testing on the component parts differ greatly. The procedure can be applied to weapons systems as easily as subsystems. No assumptions about failure distributions are made. The accuracy of the procedure was examined by computer simulations and in this manner the procedure has demonstrated high accuracy for cases of practical interest. (Author)
