Applying Reliability Models to the Space Shuttle
July/August 1992 (vol. 9 no. 4)
pp. 28-33

The experience of a team that evaluated many reliability models and tried to validate them for the on-board system software of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA's) space shuttle is presented. It is shown that three separate but related functions comprise an integrated reliability program: prediction, control, and assessment. The application of the reliability model and the allocation of test resources as part of a testing strategy are discussed.

Index Terms:
