Mathematical models are formulated for the possible onset and growth in subsystem degradation. The model recognizes that the time of onset of a degrading trend may be random, and hence initially unknown, and that the trend magnitude is also initially unknown. The trend magnitude will become better known as more data are accumulated. Maximum likelihood and Bayesian statistical procedures to estimate the time of onset and the trend magnitude are presented. A cost model is formulated to develop procedures (which recognize the uncertainty concerning the time of onset and trend magnitude) to determine estimated costs and the associated risks of upgrading the subsystem at different times in the future. Results of simulation studies of the procedures are presented.... Changepoint problems, Maximum likelihood, Bayesian procedures, Cost of system upgrade

Chang, Tun-Jen (Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 1993-03);This thesis develops a decision aid to assist in assessing the cost effectiveness of upgrading a subsystem. The procedures developed in this thesis are to estimate the time of onset and the magnitude of the degradation ...
Parent, Elias Alphonse (Stanford University, 1965-04);Many statistical procedures used and studied today are sequential in nature. By this we mean that the time when a statistical decision is reached is random. In contrast to such procedures are the fixed sample size ...
Hashad, Atalla I. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1994-12);Fundamental results developed by Wiener in the 1950's are combined with new work in the area of higher-order statistics to develop and explore a general model for nonlinear stochastic processes. The Wiener model is developed ...
