Abstract : A computer program was written that carries out reliability assessments according to a method proposed by the TRW Corporation. This method combines point estimates for reliability from different sources into an overall point estimate. The program was used to calculate the overall point estimate for cases covering a range of sample sizes, and underlying probabilities of success in order to make a judgement on the usefulness of the method.
