Reliability Growth Platform Overview
The Reliability Growth platform fits Crow-AMSAA models, described in MIL-HDBK-189 (1981). A Crow-AMSAA model is a non-homogeneous Poisson process (NHPP) model with Weibull intensity; it is also known as a power law process. Such a model allows the failure intensity, which is defined by the two parameters beta and lambda, to vary over time.
The platform fits four classes of models and performs automatic change-point detection, providing reports for the following:
• Simple Crow-AMSAA model, where both parameters are estimated using maximum likelihood.
• Crow-AMSAA with Modified MLE, where the maximum likelihood estimate for beta is corrected for bias.
• Fixed Parameter Crow-AMSAA model, where the user is allowed ...
