A refinement of an established method for computing confidence limits on system reliability.
Gress, James Andrew
MetadataShow full item record
A statement of a method  for obtaining an approximate lower 100(l-a)% confidence limit on System Reliability is made. A discussion of evaluating the accuracy of this method on a digital computer is presented. Following this the development of a continuity correction factor is developed and the accuracies of this refinement for several hypothetical systems are presented and discussed.
