Remaining Useful Life Estimation Based on a Nonlinear Diffusion Degradation Process
Remaining useful life estimation is central to the prognostics and health management of systems, particularly for safety-critical systems, and systems that are very expensive. We present a non-linearExpand

Planning accelerated life tests with two or more experimental factors
We describe methods and guidelines for planning two-factor accelerated life test experiments for models in which there is no interaction between the factors. Expand

The nontruncated marginal of a truncated bivariate normal distribution
Inference is considered for the marginal distribution ofX, when (X, Y) has a truncated bivariate normal distribution. TheY variable is truncated, but only theX values are observed. The relationshipExpand

A Comparison of Accelerated Life Test Plans for Weibull and Lognormal Distributions and Type I Censoring
Previous work on planning accelerated life test plans for the Weibull and lognormal distributions has concentrated on optimum test plans that minimize the variance of some specified estimator.Expand

Teaching about Approximate Confidence Regions Based on Maximum Likelihood Estimation
Abstract Maximum likelihood (ML) provides a powerful and extremely general method for making inferences over a wide range of data/model combinations. The likelihood function and likelihood ratiosExpand
