ASQ RRD Series: Introduction to Fractional Failure and Its Application in Reliability Engineering & Risk Assessment
Thu, Feb 13, 2020 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST
Presenter: Feng-Bin Sun – Senior Staff of Reliability Engineering, Tesla
The purpose of this presentation is to use numerical examples to demonstrate the data analysis for various fractional failure scenarios with the most popular commercial software in the market (such as Weibull++, JMP, and Minitab), including:
- data collection,
- failure classification,
- fractional failure determination,
- data entry format,
- life distribution parameter estimation,
- reliability quantification, and field risk prediction.
