This course is for anyone who needs to analyze data about how long an object (reliability) or person (survival) operates within acceptable parameters ('time to event'). The course is presented using manufacturing examples, but those interested in survival analysis or studying recidivism will also find the course useful.
Learn how to
- distinguish unique characteristics of life data
- compute non-parametric (Kaplan-Meier product-limit) estimates of failure probability
- fit distribution models specific to life data
- estimate reliability or survival measures and hazard
- estimate survival in the presence of competing causes
- use parametric survival models to estimate effects of covariates or experimental factors
- design an accelerated life test.
Who should attend
Engineers, scientists, researchers, and analysts who perform reliability, survival, or recidivism studies
Before attending this course, it is recommended you complete the JMP Software: Data Exploration and JMP Software: ANOVA and Regression courses or have equivalent experience.
This course addresses JMP software.
