Abstract : The report describes a reliability demonstration method which requires the use of a reliability prediction with its measure of uncertainty, the coefficient of variation. When used in conjunction with a classical test plan, the Bayesian/Classical (B/C) test is shown to reduce the number of test hours required to reach a decision. Three case histories compare results using the B/C test with those of the original demonstration test. The report also describes the establishment of accept/reject criteria for use in applying the B/C test method in situations where such decision criteria have not been preselected. (Author)
