Computes reliabilities associated with response levels


Alias: none

Argument(s): none


The reliabilities keyword directs Dakota to compute 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 reliabilities are not computed by default. To change this behavior, the reliabilities keyword should be specified in conjunction with the compute keyword.

Expected Outputs

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