Monitoring at Intervals

Assumes that units are inspected for failures at intervals. Failure times are interval censored. Enter the number of inspections, the time of the first inspection, and a time between inspections. For inspection intervals that are irregular, you can change the inspection times later in the Design Choices outline.

Continuous Monitoring

Assumes that exact failure times are recorded. Failure times beyond the length of the test are right censored.
