Title: Reliability Growth Test and Evaluation for Multistate Systems
Author(s): Thomas Mazzuchi*
Companies: The George Washington University
Keywords: Bayesian Reliability Growth ; Testing Logistics ; Reliability Growth Management

This presentation will describe a methodology to enable the measurement and prediction of reliability growth of a multi-stage single-shot system. It proposes the incorporation of existing test data with an expert judgment in a Bayesian framework that allows point and interval estimation of current and future reliability values, as well as addressing important managerial questions regarding optimal amount of testing and number of remaining defects.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
