### Introduction

### Experiment and data

The following tables present the time-to-failure data for these modes (in hours).

### Analysis

Step 1: Using Weibull++, the first step is to create a new data sheet for grouped times-to-failure data with suspensions.

Step 2: Rename the folio to "Component" and the data sheet to "Mode A." Enter the data given for Mode A and use the 2-parameter Weibull distribution with MLE to calculate the parameters, as shown next.

Step 3: Insert another data sheet of the same type named "Mode B," enter the data given for Mode B and calculate the parameters. Repeat for the remaining failure modes.

Step 4: Choose Home > Insert > Diagram.

Step 5: Build the RBD that describes the reliability-wise configuration of the failure modes, as shown next.

Note that the node in the diagram requires 2 of the 3 paths to succeed.

Step 6: Click Calculate to analyze the diagram.

Then use the Quick Calculation Pad (QCP) to calculate the reliability at 100 hours with the lower 1-sided 90% confidence bound, as shown next.
