Paper Abstract

How to reliably deduce life distribution of sensors is one of the practical problems in engineering. The methods currently used either lack accuracy or can not be applied until extensive test data are available. In this paper, a method combining with graphical estimation and parameter estimation has been proposed to solve this problem. Based upon the conventional methods and the theories described in this study, we have developed a computer software to deduce life distribution for engineering applications. A practical example was also given to show how the program performs statistical inference of life distribution model of sensors. By comparing the distributions, an optimum life distribution can be selected and a fit straight line and distribution parameters can be acquired. Key words: sensor, reliability, life disthbution, statistical inference.
