Abstract

First, we give an overview of the most common degradation models. We describe in more detail two degradation models where the first one is based on a Wiener process and the second one is assumed to be generated by a position-dependent marking of a doubly stochastic Poisson process. A failure occurs when the degradation reaches a given level first time. Some characteristics of these processes are described.

Keywords:

  • degradation process;
  • Wiener process;
  • marked point process, doubly stochastic Poisson process, position-dependent marking;
  • failure time
