New Methods for Life Data Analysis-A Management Overview- Seven
case studies show the latest methods and applications in a PowerPoint™
presentation. The presentation
emphasizes the benefits of Weibull analysis.
The PowerPoint slide show is designed for group presentations to
managers and engineers. The package also
includes how-to-do-the-case-studies, step-by-step, in a Word™ document. This material compliments the Weibull
training video so they are packaged together on one CD for $98.00
plus shipping and handling charges (shipping costs are US$30 for continental
USA, and US$50 for most international locations)—not a bad price for this new
CD which contains:
Seven case studies are described in the PowerPoint presentation and the Word document provides coaching notes for the presenter of the slides:
Kevin E. Bauman PE, CRE, Global Reliability Engineering Discipline Team Leader, Dow Chemical, wrote, “I received the CD and reviewed it. This is an excellent tutorial for our Weibull students. It is definitely worth sharing. Once I started, I was hooked and went through all the presentations (video, PowerPoint presentation, and Word coaching notes).”
New Methods for Life Data Analysis will be of particular interest to managers for saving time/money, six-sigma black belts for handling skewed data, engineers for making sense out of what appears to be nonsense failure data, warranty analysts for predicting future events from history records, test engineers for minimizing tests costs while maximizing credibility, and reliability, maintainability, and support (RMS) personnel for applying scientific results to develop improvement program strategies.
In the mid 1980’s the training film was produced on how to perform a Weibull Analysis. This CD of the training film shows how to make Weibull plots by hand using a reference to the first edition of The New Weibull Handbook. Of course many improvements in Weibull analysis have occurred in the last 15-20 years. The New Weibull Handbook by Dr. Robert B. Abernethy is now in the 5th edition and by use of WinSMITH Weibull software construction of Weibull plots are now very easy.
You can also download a taste of a complete home study kit:
You can download demonstration versions of the software (the demo versions will randomize your input data slightly).
You can also download the first chapter of The New Weibull Handbook.
Also available for download is a short PDF file that shows excerpts from the Basic Weibull/Visual Software Training Manual. This PDF literally shows you how to make Weibull plots and Crow-AMSAA reliability growth plots.
This download information will help you with decisions about the software and how you interpret a Weibull plot.
