Abstract : The purpose of the paper is to do the following: (1) Describe some of the complexities and limitations of missile component reliability determinations. (2) Emphasize the fact that each type of component has many reliability values simultaneously. (3) Show the relation between safety margins and reliability. (4) Define ultimate reliability. (5) Propose practical procedures for determining numerical values for reliabilities of missile components. References are given for the fundamentals of design of experiment techniques and for applications of the proposed approach to reliability determinations. (Author)
