Industrial equipment is usually repairable. Reliability of repairable systems depends on maintenance actions, and is characterized by mean cumulative function or failure intensity function of failure processes. Evolution trend of the failure intensity function is called the system-level failure pattern in the literature. The failure pattern plays an important role in preventive maintenance decision analysis. The purpose of this paper is to develop a robust non-parametric method to estimate the… CONTINUE READING
