Life Data Analysis for Reliability: Practical Applications

This tutorial introduces the terminology, models and techniques used in reliability for life data analysis. Probabilistic lifetime models and statistical methods are presented for reliability and lifetime modeling situations. The purpose is to provide attendees with basic coverage of the traditional, fundamental probability models used to describe, improve and optimize system reliability and maintainability. This coverage requires the discussion of some basic concepts from probability and distribution theory. Emphasis is placed on identifying the key assumptions associated with each model and their practical application.

Key Words: Life Data Analysis, Probabilistic Lifetime Models, Statistical Methods
