Named Distributions for Different Failure Modes

Named Distributions for Different Failure Modes

Postby Hatice » Tue May 26, 2009 6:05 pm

Hi everyone,

I want to set the distributions for different machine faults using Visual Logic. For a station with 3 failure modes, I wrote the below code:

Set Distribution Parameters TBFDist1 1 , Exponential , Input[4,10], 0 , 0 , 0
Set Distribution Parameters TBFDist1 2 , Exponential , Input[5,10], 0 , 0 , 0
Set Distribution Parameters TBFDist1 3 , Exponential , Input[6,10], 0 , 0 , 0

After some number of items produced, I change the parameters of each distribution.

1) Is this the right way to solve my problem?

2) When there are more machines, let's say 10 machines with 3 failure modes, should I create 30 named distributions?

Thanks in advance.
