Select Omit for bearing seal, belt, container throw, cord short, and engine fan (the causes with the fewest failures).

In the initial Compare Distributions report, the probability and time axes are linear. But suppose that you want to see distribution estimates on a Fréchet scale.^{}1

In the Compare Distributions report, select Fréchet in the Scale column.

3.

Select Interval Type > Pointwise from the red triangle menu.

4.

Select SEV in the Scale column.

The nonparametric estimates no longer approximate a straight line (Nonparametric Estimates with a SEV Probability Scale). You now know that the SEV distribution is not appropriate.

You have no failures (all observations are rightcensored) and the preference Weibayes Only for Zero Failure Data is checked. Then the Weibayes report appears. See Weibayes Example for Data with No Failures.
