Model Product Deterioration over Time

Using the Degradation platform, you can analyze degradation data to predict pseudo failure times. These pseudo failure times can then be analyzed by other reliability platforms to estimate failure distributions.

Both linear and nonlinear degradation paths can be modeled. You can specify an accelerating factor to analyze accelerated degradation data.

You can also perform stability analysis, which is useful when setting pharmaceutical product expiration dates.
