## Applications

The Weibull distribution is one of the most commonly used distributions in reliability engineering. There are two versions of this distribution: two-parameter Weibull and three-parameter Weibull distributions.

- shape parameter
()

- scale parameter ()

- location parameter ( yields the two-parameter Weibull distribution)

- scale parameter ()

- location parameter ( yields the two-parameter Weibull distribution)

**EasyFit** allows to
automatically or manually fit the Weibull distribution
and 55 additional distributions to your data, compare the results,
and select the best fitting model using the goodness of fit
tests and interactive graphs. Watch the short video about EasyFit
and get your ** free trial**.

EasyFit displays all graphs and properties of the Weibull distribution, presenting the results in an easy to read & understand manner. EasyFit calculates statistical moments (mean, variance etc.), quantiles, tail probabilities depending on the distribution parameters you specify.

You can easily generate random numbers from the Weibull distribution in a variety of ways:

- directly from EasyFit
- in Excel sheets using the worksheet functions provided by EasyFitXL
- in your VBA applications using the EasyFitXL library

EasyFitXL enables you to use the following functions in your Excel sheets and VBA applications:

The Weibull distribution is often used to model the time until a given technical device fails:

- if alpha<1, then the failure rate of the device decreases over time;
- if alpha=1, then the failure rate of the device is constant over time;
- if alpha>1, then the failure rate of the device increases over time.
