There is a different kind of 'reliability theory' which is used in Epistemology. Roughly it concerns the relation of testimony (or attestation) to truth. Anybody knows enough about it to write a bit more? --Sascha.leib 12:23, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

I'm not sure why the main article for reliability is a disambig page. When reliability is spoken of, it virtually always means the probabilistic sense which is outlined here, and all/most of the disambig articles refer to. I would do some work on the disambig page itself, but it doesn't appear to be editable??? I suggest we move this article to reliability, leave a redirect, and rework the disambiguation page, if it's even necessary. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:33, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
Comment the disambiguation page says "Reliability theory, as a theoretical concept, to explain biological aging and species longevity" which is not what this page says... 18.104.22.168 (talk) 05:53, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
Oppose it is usually spoken about in this manner, but rather about a characteristic of a person's persona, which is not what is outlined in this article. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 05:53, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
Oppose per Anthony Appleyard. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:02, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

A first comment is about the term and classification. Reliability is an important concept in Systems Engineering. Reliability theory is a huge subject, including system reliability, component reliability, reliability prediction, and statistics. Statistics is not the main topic, and the term should not be associated with the Statistics project. The second comment is that the particular article is about system reliability, and the topic name should be changed accordingly. Avi Harel (talk) 08:13, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
