The covariance matrix for the parameters is estimated using the Fisher information matrix. Although, using MS Excel, I cannot get the estimates to match exactly. They look to be the same up to 2 decimal points.

Re: How to calculate reliability growth parameter standard errors?

Thank you, Michael. I did find the passage to which you are referring. I am actually looking for the math that is used, which is not in the provided link. Is there an article or book you can refer me to?

Re: How to calculate reliability growth parameter standard errors?

I think this paper might help:

Crow, L. H., (1982), “Confidence Interval Procedures for the Weibull Process with Applications to Reliability Growth,” Technometrics, Feb. 1982, 24:1, 67-72.
