This chapter is dedicated to “survival analysis,” which also encompasses the statistical characterization of material failures and machine breakdowns. The statistical treatment of survival analysis requires a somewhat different approach than the other hypothesis tests, as at the end of a study many individuals may still be “alive,” and the corresponding measurement value is therefore only partially known.
