This paper conducts a Bayesian analysis of inverse Gaussian process models for degradation modeling and inference. Novel features of the Bayesian analysis are the natural manners for incorporating subjective information, pooling of random effects information among product population, and a straightforward way of coping with evolving data sets for on-line(More)
—The redundancy allocation problem has been extensively studied with the aim of determining optimal redundancy levels of components at various stages to achieve the required system reliability or availability. In most existing studies, failed elements are assumed to be as good as new after repair, from a failure perspective. Due to deterioration, the(More)

Many studies have reported on the trends of precipitation in Mid-Eastern China (EC). However, the trends of convective and stratiform precipitation are still unknown. Here, we examine the trends of summer convective and stratiform precipitation in EC from 2002 to 2012 on the basis of the TRMM observations. Results revealed that the rain frequency (RF) for(More)
—Traditionally, degradation testing and condition monitoring are used separately to investigate field reliability. Barriers are naturally formed between these two types of methods due to condition-discrepancies between lab testing and field monitoring, as well as time-varying missions among product population groups. In this paper, a joint framework for(More)
