SuperSMITH can fit the models shown in this graphic, including
2 or 3 parameter Weibull, Weibull Mixtures with 4, 5, or 7 parameters,
Normal, Gumbel Upper and Lower, and 2 or 3 parameter lognormal.
(Missing Data Estimate was presented at 2021 RAMS and is coming to the software soon!)
“SSW” - makes probability scale plots showing for each data set the associated model fit line going through or near the input data measurement points. SSW solves for graphical (regression) and non-graphical (likelihood) fits to the input data. Distribution models include Weibull, normal, lognormal, Gumbel lower, and Gumbel upper. Analysis includes support for different input data types with their associated solution methods, distribution analysis for finding the best-fitting model, confidence estimation for lower and upper bounds, 3-parameter solution, and 1-parameter solution. Tools include optimum replacement interval for lowest cost, Abernethy risk for forecasting, basic mixture solution, Barringer process reliability, test planning, and accelerated testing covariate solution.
“SSV” – generates standard X-Y plots, log-scale plots, Arrhenius scale plots, pie graphs, and bar charts. Analysis includes curve fitting, function viewing, and global data transforms. Tools include Crow-AMSAA (C-A) reliability growth trending, Nelson recurrent event solution, and forecasting with the C-A model. SSV also provides the auxiliary plotting engine for SSW table output visualization for forecasts and costs, confidence contour visualization, and associated SSW plots like density function, hazard function, and aggregate cumulative hazard (ACH).
“SSY” – provides advanced mixture solutions for multiple underlying distributions in the same set of data. Mixture solutions include 4-parameter “Competing Risk”, 5-parameter “Competing Risk Batch”, 5-parameter “Exclusive Or”, and 7-Parameter Competing Risk mixture, which models the Bathtub curve of infant mortality, chance, and wear out. Methods include graphical (regression) and non-graphical (likelihood).
In addition to the three analysis programs, there is a common HELP program that can be called from any one of the individual programs. This file also has a "Best Practice" flow chart guide, descriptions of the icons, and a detailed summary of the models and methods available.
Our standard Weibull/LogNormal workshop is a 3 day class. We cover the following topics:
Basic Weibull, Failure Forecasting, Dirty Data, Methods of analysis, Test Planning, Confidence Intervals, Reliability Growth, other Models, Mixture Analysis, and Missing Data estimates. Class includes pencil/paper analysis of some data, and working through several problems using the "Playtime Tutorial booklet" with problems to showcase the software. Each attendee gets a copy of the software.
We can also do 1, 2, or 4 day courses at your site or on-line. (Via Zoom or your organization's on-line meeting platform)
Only need to train one or two people? Check our calendar for public courses offered by SAE, University of Tennessee, and Quanterion.

We would rather train you to be the expert, but sometimes you need help to make sure things are being analyzed properly. We have hourly and daily rates, and can work remotely or on-site at your location. Recent examples include:
1. A process group wanted to use Weibull to determine an optimum calibration interval on transducers. We worked with them to set up a system and gauge training so that they could be successful with appropriate risk levels
2. A manufacturer wanted to set up tests to show that their product was superior to the competition, and wanted to have guidance on analyzing plots and confidence bounds based on numbers of samples.
3. A product had some critical issues after years of use. What is the risk of future events and what should be done to address these issues?

When software is purchased, we provide technical support to make sure that it is running correctly on your system. Sometimes there are issues with a particular configuration and we will help you resolve those.
Got a quick question? We are happy to answer questions by phone or e-mail on how to do a particular task in the software, or to interpret your results. If the question turns out to be not-so-quick, then we will discuss a consulting contract if needed.
In class, we use "The New Weibull Handbook", by Dr. Robert Abernethy,
ISBN: 0965306232 . We recommend that you get it from Amazon. (We do well at software, they do well at publishing and shipping books!)
Want an official disk with your software? We can do that for US$20 in the US, and some international locations. Contact us for pricing for your address.
When you purchase the software, you have a license to use it as long as your version of Windows supports it. We offer a discount on updating your SW, depending on when you purchased it or took the class. We also offer a quantity discount. Contact us and we will be happy to quote.
Many customers will purchase a site license. With a site license, you can install the software so it is available to all of your employees. We also offer maintenance on these licenses. Contact us for a quote.
