Assessing influence in regression analysis with censored data.
In this paper we show how to evaluate the effect that perturbations to the model, data, or case weights have on maximum likelihood estimates from censored survival data. The ideas and methods alsoExpand

A COMPARISON OF DEGRADATION AND FAILURE-TIME ANALYSIS METHODS FOR ESTIMATING A TIME-TO-FAILURE DISTRIBUTION
Degradation analysis can be used to assess reliability when few or even no failures are expected in a life test. In this paper, we use a simple but useful degra- dation model to compare degradationExpand
