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.

Comparing the Maximum Likelihood Method and a Modified Moment Method to fit a Weibull distribution to aircraft engine failure time data. Güimil, Fernando (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-09);This thesis provides a comparison of the accuracies of two methods for fitting a Weibull distribution to a set of aircraft engines time between failure data. One method used is the Maximum Likelihood Method and assumes ...
