What is WeiBayes Analysis?
podcast episode with speaker Chris Jackson
Some of us might have heard of the Weibull distribution. Some of us might have heard about Weibull analysis. Weibull analysis uses the Weibull distribution to help us visualize failure data in a really useful way. We can ‘see’ if our product is wearing out. We can see if our product is wearing in. We can estimate how many things will have failed by certain times. We can do all manners of other wonderful ‘reliability engineering’ things through Weibull Analysis. But then there is ‘WeiBayes Analysis.’ It combines Weibull and Bayesian analysis (… I know that doesn’t mean much to most people). It can be really useful if we know ‘how’ something we are testing fails. Because if we do, then we can essentially feed a certain parameter into the analysis to help it on its way. This means that we don’t need as much data (always a good thing in reliability engineering). But there are quite a few catches. Interested in learning about Weibayes analysis?
