Abstract
A summary or the Weibull distribution and three representative sampling procedures to determine point and confidence interval estimates of the parameters that occur in the functional form of the Weibull distribution are presented. Following this, a model, assuming the Weibull distribution, is proposed which could have possible ap­plications in analyzing Polaris Missile System Trouble Failure Reports to determine point estimates of the reliability of the Polaris Missile components. I am indebted to Professor P. W. Zehna tor his con­tinued patience, encouragement, and most capable guidance while acting as faculty advisor. I also wish to thank Professor W.M. Woods tor his valuable assistance as second reader.
