For more information about the options in the Select Columns red triangle menu, see Column Filter Menu in Using JMP.

The launch window includes a tab for each of four data formats: Time to Event Format, Dates Format, Concurrent Systems, and Parallel Systems.

The Dates Format assumes that time is recorded in a date/time format, indicating an absolute date or time. On the Dates Format tab, the time column or columns are given the Timestamp role.

The other three data formats assume that time is recorded as the number of time units; for example, days or hours, since initial start-up of the system. The test start time is assumed to be time zero. On the Time to Event Format tab, the time column or columns are given the Time to Event role.

Rows with missing data in the columns Time to Event, Timestamp, Event Count, Phase, or System ID are not included in the analysis.

Note: All data formats for the Reliability Growth platform require that times or time intervals be specified in non-decreasing order.
