B. Lack of adequate employee training and process audits.

C. The accumulation of random process variations.

D. A poor initial estimation of reliability.

 

2. In a corrective action system, trend analysis can be defined as :

I. Long-term movement. III. A cyclical component of a time series.

A. First occurrence of a failure mode.

B. Second occurrence of a failure mode.

C. Third occurrence of a failure mode.
