Data censoring is a staple feature of reliability data analysis. In this talk, we will discuss several different types of censored data – where they are from, how to recognize the censoring type, and how format the data for analysis. More importantly, the data analyst should understand the impacts of different types of censoring on reliability estimation and life test planning, so as to avoid some typical pitfalls caused by ignoring censoring or by using wrong types of censoring. We will demonstrate the value of performing Monte Carlo simulations for studying the impacts of censoring and for evaluating a life test plan.
