Abstract : The paper presents the mathematical formulation of several failure distribution functions and the computation of fitting these functions to different types of sample data. It is intended that the failure distribution function be found which will best fit the DDG2 failure data. The interim report includes the fitting of Poisson and Negative Binomial Distribution to the distribution of 13 sets of sample data. (Author)
