SAS/QC procedures use ODS Graphics functionality to create graphs as part of their output. ODS Graphics is described in detail in Chapter 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS in SAS/STAT 12.1 User's Guide.
Before you create graphs, ODS Graphics must be enabled. For example:
ods graphics on; proc reliability; probplot y; run; ods graphics off;
For more information about enabling and disabling ODS Graphics, see Chapter 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS in SAS/STAT 12.1 User's Guide.
See Chapter 3: SAS/QC Graphics, for alternative methods of creating graphics with PROC RELIABILITY. See the section Analysis of Right-Censored Data from a Single Population for an example that uses ODS Graphics in PROC RELIABILITY to create a probability plot and the section ODS Graph Names for ODS Graphics table names.
If ODS Graphics is enabled (for example, with the ODS GRAPHICS ON statement), PROC RELIABILITY creates graphs by using ODS Graphics. You can reference every graph produced through ODS Graphics with a name. The names of the graphs that PROC RELIABILITY generates are listed in Table 16.80, along with the required statements and options.
