Abstract : The study evaluates the accuracy of an established reliability measurement procedure by computer simulation. The reliability measurement procedure assumes components fail according to an Exponential Failure Law. This study tests the accuracy of that procedure when components obey a Weibull Failure Law or a Log Normal Failure Law. (Author)
