Abstract : The problems and potential of Bayesian and empirical Bayesian procedures in reliability testing are examined. Procedures are developed for the case where the prior distribution is only partially known. The results are then applied to problems in component allocation and error rate analysis in computer networks. Of specific interest in these areas are the differences in component allocation solutions and message routing and loads.
