Conference paper

Abstract

The information collected from equipments operating in industrial plants for a reliability data bank (RDB) has peculiarities that make difficult its posterior statistical treatment. Its vaguenesses and indeterminations could not be obviate and must be analyzed.

Keywords

Survival Time Final Time Inference Method Truncation Point Bayesian Procedure 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
