Two statistics for testing goodness of fit for small sample sizes are provided. The first statistic, S, can be used to test the fit to any completely specified continuous distribution function and is… Expand

This paper describes methods of fitting prior distributions to equipment MTBF = ?, shows the priors fitted to different equipments, establishes data criteria for fitting prior distribution to ?, and… Expand

Abstract In the computation of two-sided confidence intervals for the binomial parameter p (using the binomial mass function), it is known that such intervals achieve a confidence coefficient that in… Expand

In this paper we modify a previously given procedure for testing the equality of the scale parameters of two Weibull populations with common shape parameters. Also presented is a modification of a… Expand

A common reliability test procedure is to test until a given, consecutive, failure-free time has passed. This paper gives expressions for the mean time to test completion, for both elapsed and… Expand

System availability is an important measure of system effectiveness. This is particularly true of systems which are required to be “on station” more or less continuously, e.g., early warning systems,… Expand
