Should You Be Afraid of Statistics?
James and Fred discussing dealing with the data we gather.
Join James and Fred as they discuss the need to collect good data and analyze it appropriately.
- Is the data we have useful? A first look at available data is often incomplete, thus limiting.
- The need to get past simple run charts or the use of averages.
- The value of statistics does take a bit work, and well worth the effort.
Enjoy an episode of Speaking of Reliability. Where you can join friends as they discuss reliability topics. Join us as we discuss topics ranging from design for reliability techniques, to field data analysis approaches.
SOR 229 Should You Be Afraid of Statistics?James Kovacevic
how do you use statistics for reliability predication when you have no failures or it takes too long to get failures?
James Kovacevic says
You can do some statistics with a minimal amount of data (10 points) using a reliability growth analysis. Obviously the more data the better.
If you don’t have any data, you may be able to leverage industry or similar equipment.
Thanks for the response James.
