Definitions for "reliability"
A standard used in evaluating research results by determining whether the same outcomes could be observed by other researchers in other settings or by the same researchers in repeated trials or observations; the quality of consistency in findings.
The degree of accuracy with which results are measured. The 'retest reliability' of a test is particularly important, i.e. the degree to which a person's performance is the same when the same (selection) test is repeated.
The degree to which a research sample result conforms with the result that would be obtained if a complete census were taken.
The degree to which the performance of an electrical system results in electricity being delivered to customers within accepted standards and in the amount that meets customer demand.
Steady, predictable electric service. Continued reliability is a key component of industry restructuring.
RELIABILITY is the assurance of a continuous supply of electricity for customers at the proper voltage and frequency.
The project focuses on an relibility package for GNU R, which allows to estimate software reliability metrics like failure rate or hazard rate.
The probability a system performs a specified function or mission under given conditions for a prescribed time.
The ability of an item to perform a required function under stated conditions for a stated period of time. [D01625] ISO 8402 QMPP The probability that an item will perform its intended function for a specified interval under stated conditions. [D01624] USDoD QMPP A fundamental characteristic of an item or material expressed as the probability that it will perform its intended function for a specified time under stated conditions. [D03684] DSMC
A quality of some fictional narrators whose word the reader can trust. There are both reliable and unreliable narrators, that is, tellers of a story who should or should not be trusted. Most narrators are reliable (Fitzgerald's Nick Carraway, Conrad's Marlow), but some are clearly not to be trusted (Poe's "Tell-Tale Heart," several novels by Nabokov). And there are some about whom readers have been unable to decide (James's governess in The Turn of the Screw, Ford's The Good Soldier).
Refers to the degree of certainty and predictability in travel times on the transportation system. Reliable transportation systems offer some assurance of attaining a given desti­nation within a reasonable range of an expected time. An unreliable transportation system is subject to unexpected delays, increasing costs for system users
How sure you are that if someone else carried out your investigation they would get the same results and come to the same conclusions. Unreliable conclusions are worthless, other than telling you that the investigation must be modified and improved.
A service measure in transit planning, if a train or bus arrives within 10 minutes of its scheduled time, it is considered reliable. Reliability can be impacted by congestion on the tracks, delays at stations, and equipment malfunction.
The ability of a transport mechanism to successfully complete its task under adverse conditions. For example, TCP throughput is typically reduced to zero when packet loss along its path reaches 5%. MTP is able to complete data transfers with packet loss rates as high as 50%. See also transport reliability.
In the context of network transport protocol s, reliability refers to whether or not the protocol attempts to correct for packet s which are lost in transit, usually due to congestion. Both TCP and MTP are considered "reliable" protocols in that they try to correct for loss. As noted in the definition of functional reliability, MTP is about 10 times better at this than TCP. See also functional reliability.
11,12 Suitable or fit to be relied on; trustworthy.
Refers to the authority and trustworthiness of records as evidence. Reliable records can be trusted due to their form, their completeness, the degree of control exercised on their creation, and their author's reliability. [Duranti, 1995
In accounting, the quality of accounting information that requires a company's accounting records and financial statements to present accurate, objective information that is free from bias and misrepresentation.
Yielding the same or compatible results in different clinical experiments or statistical trials.
In statistics, the technique by which the same or compatible results can be obtained through different experiments or statistical tests. See also Bias; Validity
The state or quality of being reliable; reliableness.
Reliability means the capacity of the tyre in terms of quality of maintaining its performance unchanged in time, with specific reference to driving safety.
the quality of sound and consistent performance or behaviour
Having the traits of representational faithfulness, verifiability, and neutrality; a qualitative characteristic of accounting information.
the trait of being dependable or reliable
providing adequate and dependable generation, transmission and distribution service.
An evaluative criteria which involves questioning whether or not the facts presented in a work are accurate.
Refers to how accurate something is or how often it wins.
A reliable record is one whose contents can be trusted as a full and accurate representation of the transactions, activities, or facts to which they attest and can be depended upon in the course of subsequent transactions or activities
Ratio of expected to received keepalives from a link. If the ratio is high, the line is reliable. Used as a routing metric.
Expected service life for a tool's intended purpose
a standard of expectations
The property of components that determines how often they fail. Low reliability can be detrimental to the availability of assets stored on that component, and can result in increased workload for support staff.
All the respondents will interpret the questionnaire items the same way.
Keywords:  credible, content, date, source, terms
Content that is credible in terms of its source and is kept up to date.
Since the program is purely for recreation and involves no user data, reliability is of low importance.
This is the concept of how long a device or process can operate properly without needing maintenance or replacement.
a term used to describe the accuracy of the information that is being recorded.
