Abstract : An improved procedure for estimating system reliability is developed, combining numerical integration and statistical simulation. The procedure uses stratified numerical approximation followed by a post-stratification sample for 'control variable' purposes. This combination results in accuracies comparable to that of stratified Monte Carlo simulation at less computational costs. (Author)
