A Practical Method for Failure Analysis Using Incomplete Warranty Data

by Mohan, Karen; Cline, Brad; Akers, Jennifer

In this paper, we show that when the failure history information is incomplete, the failure distribution of the product can be determined using Bayesian analysis techniques applicable for handling incomplete data..
