Use Pre-Process Warranty Data to reformat raw data into a format that is appropriate for performing a life data analysis.
Frequently, reliability field data is tracked and recorded in the form of the number of systems shipped and the number of systems returned from the shipment in subsequent time periods. When several shipments are made at different dates and their corresponding returns are noted, the recorded data often appear in the worksheet in the form of a triangular matrix.

After using this command, your data will be properly arranged in the worksheet to perform a life data analysis, such as warranty prediction.
