A Weibull / Lognormal introduction. Brings the novice up to working level. Covers analysis of good data, messy data, forecasting, optimum replacements, inspections, grouped data, Weibayes, test planning, and reliability growth modeling. Training includes hours of hands-on problem solving with SuperSMITH software to analyze example data found in the PlayTIME Computer Tutorial for SuperSMITH.
Extends coverage to alternate fitting solutions such as maximum likelihood estimation (mle), distribution comparison, system and mixture solutions, confidence, significant differences, and related models. More time is included for student hands-on problem solving using SuperSMITH. There is additional time for details concerning simulation models or for follow-up consulting on data brought by each student.
Our complete seminar features front-to-back treatment of The New Weibull Handbook(c) latest edition. Each attendee receives the handbook and also receives the FULL SuperSMITH(R) software latest version including two afternoons of hands-on computer usage, plus the PlayTIME(TM) tutorial booklet covering every type of problem and every related software option. This workshop is designed to bring the novice up to expert capability. Topics include failure analysis, optimal parts replacement, cost analysis, failure prediction, warranty analysis, system modeling, reliability-growth, alternate fitting solutions, test planning, confidence, and accelerated testing. Chemical & Petro-Chemical Plant, Medical, and every type of commercial product or service. Coverage of the complete New Weibull Handbook(c) by Dr. Bob.
The four-day workshop includes the FULL workshop above plus either time for student presentations of their own real problems or time for system simulation overview. Analysis of real customer problems allows Wes or Carl and the class to serve as a consulting forum reviewing each problem. The students are asked to bring one or more of their own problems to the workshop. Students get consulting on their real problems and show how they are applying the new techniques learned. Managers are invited. Alternatively, time may be devoted to system simulation tools for building models of any level of complexity regarding reliability, maintainability, safety, spare parts, logistics analysis and warranty-guarantee costs including experience with computer simulation models. the basic workshop for the same people.
