Computes generalized reliabilities associated with response levels


Alias: none

Argument(s): none


The gen_reliabilities keyword directs Dakota to compute generalized reliabilities according to the specified distribution for a specified response value. This is done for every response level designated for each response.

Default Behavior

If response_levels is specified, the generalized reliabilities are not computed by default. To change this behavior, the gen_reliabilities keyword should be specified in conjunction with the compute keyword.

Expected Outputs

The Dakota output is a set of response level-generalized reliability pairs according to the distribution defined.
