Best Practices in Reliability Data Analysis
Probability Plots in Life Distribution
How can you accurately predict the time-to-failure for your components and products? In this presentation, Bill Meeker, PhD, Professor of Statistics at Iowa State University, provides an overview of one of the most widely-used statistical tools for analyzing reliability data: probability plots. Using an example of a fatigue test on an alloy, Dr. Meeker will help you gain a better understanding of:
- The primary purposes of probability plots.
- How to assess the adequacy of different probability plotting scales including normal, Weibull and lognormal.
- How to fit a distribution to the data and extrapolate failure rates into the future using maximum likelihood estimation.
