Probablity plot

How do I plot a probablity graph, say,"%Failure Rate (FR)" vs. "time"; where FR is cumulative failure rate from say 0.000001% to 100%?

    For such a range of failure rates, you may want to consider a log plot of the failure rates, i.e., plot time on the x-axis in the normal linear fashion, and plot the log(base 10) of the failure rate or cumulative failure rate (written as either a discrete summation of failures with sigma or an integral if you have established a function of the failure rate as a function of time).

    If this doesn't help, post a sample of your data and it can easily be demonstrated. Hope this helps.

        MathCad 8 lists four functions:


        Information in the manual is scarce; I expect that there are quick sheets on the subject.
