Abstract : The Reliability Engineering Handbook has been prepared to fill an increasing need for a manual of reliability methods suitable for application by project management and engineering personnel within the Bureau of Naval Weapons- to assist in the full exploitation of available reliability assurance measures in the planning, direction, and monitoring of their respective development programs. This handbook differs from others in that it demonstrates step-by-step procedures for the application of methods to fulfill specific program requirements, and it references other documentation for more detailed treatment of the principles which underlie the methods. The handbook attempts to satisfy the need for a digest of these principles, however, through practical examples drawn from the several phases of the system life cycle. This first edition presents specific procedures for effective planning, achievement, on the conceptual and early design phases of system development.
