Shows the overlaid failure plots (proportion failing over time) for each group (in the tradition of the reliability literature.) A failure plot reverses the y-axis to show the number of failures rather than the number of survivors.

Note: The Failure Plot option replaces the Reverse Y Axis option found in older versions of JMP (which is still available in scripts).

Note: The first seven options (Show Points, Show Kaplan Meier, Show Combined, Show Confid Interval, Show Simultaneous CI, Show Shaded Pointwise CI, and Show Shaded Simultaneous CI) and the last two options (Fitted Survival CI, Fitted Failure CI) pertain to the initial survival plot and failure plot. The other five (Midstep Quantile Points, Connect Quantile Points, Fitted Quantile, Fitted Quantile CI Lines, Fitted Quantile CI Shaded) pertain only to the distributional plots.

Shows the pointwise 95% confidence bands on the survival plot for groups and for the combined plot when it appears with the Show Combined option.

When you select Show Points and Show Combined, the survival plot for the total or combined sample appears as a gray line. The points also appear at the plot steps of each group.

Changes the plotting positions to use the modified Kaplan-Meier plotting positions, which are equivalent to taking mid-step positions of the Kaplan-Meier curve, rather than the bottom-of-step positions. This option is recommended, so it is on by default.

Plots the cumulative exponential failure probability by time for each group. Lines that are approximately linear empirically indicate the appropriateness of using an exponential model for further analysis. For example, in Exponential, Weibull, and Lognormal Plots and Reports, the lines for Group 1 and Group 2 in the Exponential Plot are curved rather than straight. This indicates that the exponential distribution is not appropriate for this data. See Exponential, Weibull, and Lognormal Plots and Fits.

Produces the Exponential Parameters table and the linear fit to the exponential cumulative distribution function in the Exponential Plot. See Exponential, Weibull, and Lognormal Plots and Reports. The parameter Theta corresponds to the mean failure time. See Exponential, Weibull, and Lognormal Plots and Fits.

Plots the cumulative Weibull failure probability by log(time) for each group. A Weibull plot that has approximately parallel and straight lines indicates a Weibull survival distribution model might be appropriate to use for further analysis. See Exponential, Weibull, and Lognormal Plots and Fits.

Produces the linear fit to the Weibull cumulative distribution function in the Weibull plot and two popular forms of Weibull estimates. These estimates are shown in the Extreme-value Parameter Estimates table and the Weibull Parameter Estimates tables. See Exponential, Weibull, and Lognormal Plots and Reports. The Alpha parameter is the 0.632 quantile of the failure-time distribution. The Extreme-value table shows a different parameterization of the same fit, where Lambda = ln(Alpha) and Delta = 1/Beta. See Exponential, Weibull, and Lognormal Plots and Fits.

Plots the cumulative lognormal failure probability by log(time) for each group. A lognormal plot that has approximately parallel and straight lines indicates a lognormal distribution is appropriate to use for further analysis. See Exponential, Weibull, and Lognormal Plots and Fits.

Produces the linear fit to the lognormal cumulative distribution function in the lognormal plot and the LogNormal Parameter Estimates table shown in Exponential, Weibull, and Lognormal Plots and Reports. Mu and Sigma correspond to the mean and standard deviation of a normally distributed natural logarithm of the time variable. See Exponential, Weibull, and Lognormal Plots and Fits.

Use in conjunction with the fit options to show three plots corresponding to the fitted distributions: Survival, Density, and Hazard. If you have not performed a fit, no plot appears. See Fitted Distribution Plots.
