Reliability for probabilistic design and the simple stress-strength failure model depend only upon the interference of the stress and the strength random variables. This paper presents a methodology to compute bounds on the design reliability, given some bounds on probabilities over intervals of the overlapping tails of the stress and the strength random variables. Quadratic programming optimization is employed to find upper and lower bounds on reliability.
