Weibull Analysis is the starting point for solving most issues related to product reliability, maintainability, supportability, quality, safety, test planning, and cost control. Weibull Analysis is popular worldwide as the best method for modeling and predicting variability and failure of designs, products, and systems. Instructor Wes Fulton will provide a solid overview of Weibull Solution Methods including an explanation of 16 additional Weibull Analysis capabilities, or Weibull Extensions. This introductory short course should be considered a prerequisite for participation in a Weibull project or for attending additional SAE training that covers advanced Weibull applications.
