- Shiva consists of 2,200 flashlamp units. The reliability of such units is studied. The probability that none of the units will fail if they are to undergo a certain number of shots (say 50, 100 or 200) provided that all these units have been tested for a given number of shots is estimated. The data used to develop the method are given. Suitable models for the failure rate of an individual unit are considered, and the parameters for these models are computed. The best model is selected and reliability estimates are made using the limited data available. The steps that were taken to evaluate this estimate are summarized.
