The purpose of this study was to develop a test which can be used to compare the reliability performances of two types of equipment components to determine whether or not the new component satisfies a given feasibility criterion.
Two types of tests were presented and compared: the fixed sample size test and the truncated sequential probability ratio test. Both of these tests involve use of a statistic which is approximately distributed as F.
This study showed that the truncated sequential probability ratio test has good potential as a means of comparing two component types to see whether or not the reliability of the new component is at least a certain number of times greater than the reliability of the old component.
