Reliability Assessment for Small Sample Based on Interval Degradation Data
Based on reliability analysis theory, traditional interval reliability analysis method is improved by take the smaller value of probability reliability and interval reliability as the results of reliability assessment, which makes the reliability assessment results more fit engineering cases. The improved model is applied to reliability assessment of small sample products with degradation characteristics, and results of assessment are compared with existing methods. A numerical example is considered, the results show that the assessment results by the method proposed in the paper is reasonable and believable.
