Data description

A company set the warranty of its new type of mufflers at 50,000 miles. The reliability group wants to assess the reliability of the new mufflers and estimate the proportion of warranty claims that they can expect. The measurement of interest is the number of miles driven on the new type of muffler when the warranty claim is made.

The company selects a Weibull distribution to describe the data.
