My question is similar point with previous question.
On reliability demonstration, I will demonstrate 0 failure at one equipment during test time. I have to determine confidence interval and I want to know what value and criteria are applied in usual case. Thanks.

Subject: Question on Confidence
I am planning on conducting a reliability study using time censored data assuming a Chi-Square distribution. Assuming 0 failures, I have been estimating the appropriate length for the study to maintain a desired reliability and confidence. As I am limited on study length, I am considering lowering either confidence or reliability. Although I am reluctant to reduce confidence, it seams to be the option preferred by management to maintain a high minimum reliability. I am unclear on the effect of lowering confidence and was hoping someone could go into detail on the effect.

Subject: LRU undetected failure rates
In performing a system safety analysis for an aircraft installation I used the product manufacturer's Failure Modes and Criticality Analysis as a starting point for my system level analysis. The manufaturer maintains that the undetected failure rate (failures not detected by Built In Test) for LRUs interfaced with the system can be assumed at 5% for digital components and 10% for analog LRUs. Is there any data or documentation to substantiate this position?

I'm look for the standard of RDF 2000 (UTEC 80810) from France Telecom. Dose anyone know how to get it? Any information about calculation of tunnel reliability of Optical Transmission Network will be welcomed. Thanks.
