Abstract : A truncated sequential test on the variance of a normal distribution is applied to a maintainability demonstration test for one of the parameters of a lognormal distribution by noting that if X is lognormal, log X is normal. A variety of cases are evaluated and examples are given. The results are based on Aroian's direct method. (Author)
