This START sheet discusses the important problem of (empirically) assessing both the Normal and Lognormal distribution assumptions of a data set. Several numerical and graphical examples were presented and some related theoretical and practical issues were discussed.
Some other, very important, reliability analysis topics were mentioned. Due to their complexity, these will be treated in more detail in separate, forthcoming START sheets.
