WILEY-INTERSCIENCE PAPERBACK SERIES
The Wiley-Interscience Paperback Series consists of selected books that have been made more accessible to consumers in an effort to increase global appeal and general circulation. With these new unabridged softcover volumes, Wiley hopes to extend the lives of these works by making them available to future generations of statisticians, mathematicians, and scientists.
"Many examples drawn from the author’s experience of engineering applications are used to illustrate the theoretical results, which are presented in a cookbook fashion...it provides an excellent practical guide to the analysis of product-life data."

Now a classic, Applied Life Data Analysis has been widely used by thousands of engineers and industrial statisticians to obtain information from life data on consumer, industrial, and military products. Organized to serve practitioners, this book starts with basic models and simple informative probability plots of life data. Then it progresses through advanced analytical methods, including maximum likelihood fitting of advanced models to life data. All data analysis methods are illustrated with numerous clients' applications from the author's consulting experience.

A practical guide to statistical methods for predicting product life and reliability, and comparing improvements in product manufacturing, design, and application. Describes the use of graphical methods, the method of maximum likelihood, censored data analysis, linear estimation, prediction methods, and methods for complete, singly censored, multiply censored, interval, and quantalresponse data. Techniques are illustrated with step-by-step, real-data numerical examples.From the Inside Flap:
This practical, highly readable work presents the latest methods in life data analysis — both simple and sophisticated ones for predicting the time-to-failure of a product or living organism. Life data analysis is currently used to predict warranty costs, evaluate replacement policies, assess design changes, and compare alternate designs, vendors, materials, and manufacturing methods. It is also a valuable tool in the comparison of alternative medical treatments. In both organization and scope Applied Life Data Analysis is designed to serve the day-to-day user of statistics — industrial statisticians, engineers, and other practitioners in fields where survival data are studied, such as medicine, biology, actuarial science, economics, business, and criminology. Its logical, step-by-step development of the methodology progresses from basic models and simple graphical analyses of data through advanced analytical methods, with each topic self-contained for easy reference. A wealth of practical numerical examples using real data simplify the application of the techniques. Derivations are omitted unless they prove helpful in understanding the material. Among the useful tools explained are:
