Abstract: 
Most maintenance and reliability professionals have seen the six failure patterns (or failure hazard plots), described by Nowlan and Heap. Namely: Bathtub Curve, Wear Out, Fatigue, Initial Break-In, Random, and Infant Mortality. The majority of failures experienced are not directly related to age, but are the result of random or induced failures.   So how does this help when establishing a maintenance program?
