The file, found in the Reliability subfolder, contains data on fixes to a braking system. The Date column gives the dates when Fixes, given in the second column, were implemented. For this data, the failure times are known. Note that the Date column must be in ascending order.
The test start time is the first entry in the Date column, 09/29/2011, and the corresponding value for Fixes is set at 0. This is needed in order to convey the start time for testing. Had there been a nonzero value for Fixes in this first row, the corresponding date would have been treated as the test start time, but the value of Fixes would have been treated as 0 in the analysis.
The test termination time is given in the last row as 05/31/2012. Because the value in Fixes in the last row is 0, the test is considered to be time terminated on 5/31/2012. Had there been a nonzero value for Fixes in this last row, the test would have been considered failure terminated.
