One of the most fundamental activities of reliability, availability and maintainability (RAM) engineering is life data analysis. At its most basic level, reliability deals with the ‘life’ of equipment. Life data analysis can be simple in a test environment, or can be a complex data mining activity from field data.
Life data analysis can be conducted at the systemic level, or be focused enough to include component life analysis. There are various methodologies that can be employed that range from basic random variable distribution fitting (using exponential, normal, lognormal, Weibull or other probability distributions) to data, or higher level techniques that involve Bayesian analysis or influence networks.
