Homework 10 (09 April 2015) 1. The time to failure of an electrical connector is lognormal with a shape parameter of 0.73. Since failures, measured in operating hours, were observed to be related to the operating temperature of the connector and the number of electrical contacts, the following covariate model was derived: ( ) where is the operating temperature in degrees centigrade and is the number of contacts. A particular connector used in a personal computer will operate at 80 and has 16 contact pins. What s its reliability over a 5000-hr life? 2. From the following failure times, obtained from a reliability test program, construct an exponential least-squares plot of failure data. Failure time, ( ) 3.3 4.2 12.9 13.8 14.3 14.8 18.5 22.8 27.1 29.7 32 39.5 41.3 41.6 51.1 61.7 92.2 106.6 148.8 198.1 3.

Unformatted text preview: 106.6 148.8 198.1 3. The following data were collected on the number of production runs that resulted in a failure that stopped the production line: 5, 8, 2, 10, 7, 1, 2, 5. Therefore, if the random variable of interest, X, is the number of production runs necessary to obtain a failure, 1) What’s the probability distribution for X? 2) What’s the maximum likelihood estimate for the parameter? 3) What’s the probability that the line will fail during the third run? 4. Repair times of a mechanical pump are believed to follow a lognormal distribution. Twenty-five repair times (in minutes) were observed as part of a maintainability demonstration: 47.1 84.8 151.9 122.5 218.2 99.6 59.8 138.8 213.5 53.4 102.4 100.8 230.1 104.6 61.5 122.1 186.2 498.4 77.0 78.7 112.3 44.0 151.3 151.3 222.8 Find the MLEs for the lognormal distribution....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
