Regression Models in Reliability

Part of the Springer Series in Statistics book series (SSS)

The distribution of reliability data may depend on covariates, also known as explanatory variables, independent variables, predictors, or regressors. This chapter shows how to incorporate covariates in the analysis of binomial success/failure data, Poisson count data, and lifetime data. Covariates allow us to compare the reliability between two or more different situations. We also discuss how covariates arise in accelerated life testing and in experiments to improve reliability.
