## Parametric & Non-Parametric Data Analysis

Given a set of failure data, can we tell if it fits some known probability
distribution? If not maybe we can construct a probability distribution
for the data.
Two approaches can be used to analyze data :
Non parametric
Parametric

Lecture #6

## Non-Parametric Data Analysis

Non-parametric data analysis normally refers to those techniques
that do not rely on data belonging to any particular distribution. It
assumes that the data are not drawn from a given probability
distribution.
No assumptions about underlying probability distribution.
Construct histograms, sample mean, sample variance, and rank
statistics.
Large # of data points use histogram to get failure distribution
function ( )
Small # of data points use rank statistics to get

## Parametric Data Analysis

Despite non-parametric data analysis, parametric data analysis
assumes that the data have come from a type of probability
distribution and makes inferences about the parameters of the
distribution.
By assuming that data comes from a probability distribution, this
method tries to fit data to that distribution and then estimate
distribution parameters (e.g. in exponential distribution)

## Non-Parametric Data Analysis Rank Statistics

Small # of data points, use rank statistics to get Q(t).
Why do you have small # of data points?
Testing is destructive (part is expensive).
Not enough time to test.

probability distribution, check if it fits, and then estimate parameters
from the plot.

## Least Squares Fitting

Consider exponential plotting. Rather than draw line by eyeball, we
want a more precise estimate of the line (y-intercept, slope). In this
case, Least squares fitting can be used.
Given data points (I@ , /@ ), find the line / = I + J that minimize
the mean square deviation of the vertical distance between the
points (I@ , /@ ) and the corresponding values on the line.
