Abstract : This manual provides a detailed description of the methodology and computer code developed for the U.S. Army Aviation Systems Command (AVSCOM) which estimates reliability and mean-time-between-failure (MTBF) of an aircraft system using Bayesian methods. The computer code calculates MTBF, cost and reliability for each item of the aircraft system based on the historical data alone, and by Bayes theory, which combines the historical data with the test data.
