Subject: Failure rate prediction
There are a great deal of products operating in the field entironment. Recently, some failures were occured and caused some losses for our company. The main cause is some types of component failed, such as hard disks, memories, power modules. Now, the company leaders wonder: 1. How long will the remainder products that not failed to this day last? 2. and if there will be a moment that most products will fail? By these, we can make some preparatives before they fail, such as preventive replacement. Any advices will be welcome.
