r_squared_profiling: R²-Profile Function for Log-Location-Scale Distributions with...

Description Usage Arguments Value References Examples

Description

This function evaluates the coefficient of determination with respect to a given threshold parameter of a three-parametric lifetime distribution. In terms of Median Rank Regression this function can be optimized (optim) to estimate the threshold parameter.

Usage

1
2
r_squared_profiling(x, y, thres, distribution = c("weibull3",
  "lognormal3", "loglogistic3"))

Arguments

x

a numeric vector which consists of lifetime data. Lifetime data could be every characteristic influencing the reliability of a product, e.g. operating time (days/months in service), mileage (km, miles), load cycles.

y

a numeric vector which consists of estimated failure probabilities regarding the lifetime data in x.

thres

a numeric value of the threshold parameter.

distribution

supposed distribution of the random variable. The value can be "weibull3", "lognormal3" or "loglogistic3".

Value

Returns the coefficient of determination for a specified threshold value.
