A-basis and B-basis statistical tolerance limit computations are given for Type II failure censored log-normal data. The statistical tolerance limits are established by using factors given by Nelson and Schmee in conjunction with the best linear unbiased estimates for the normal distribution based on the coefficients tabulated by Sarhan and Greenberg. These tolerance limit computations complement analogous computations based on the Weibull distribution which have been illustrated in a recent tutorial paper by Little.
