BS EN 61164:2004

Reliability growth. Statistical test and estimation methods

Status : Current   Published : September 2004



IEC 61164:2004 gives models and numerical methods for reliability growth assessments based on failure data, which were generated in a reliability improvement programme. These procedures deal with growth, estimation, confidence intervals for product reliability and goodness-of-fit tests. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are:

- addition of two statistical models for reliability growth planning and tracking in the product design phase;

- statistical methods for the reliability growth programme in the design phase of IEC 61014;

- addition of the discrete reliability growth model for the test phase;

- addition of the fixed number of faults model for the test phase, clarification of the symbols used for various models;

- addition of real lif examples for most of the statistical models;

- numerical correction of tables in the reliability growth test example.
