The traditional approach in an industrial setting is to use Weibull analysis: http://www.statsoft.com/textbook/stprocan.html#weibull

However, there are a number of other survival analysis methods that are used in biomedical research and you could just as well use any of these: http://www.statsoft.com/textbook/stsurvan.html

Hi Matt, We are in touch with him with StatSoft Solution.

Thanks.

plot the hazard function and see whether it looks like the hazard function for any theoretical distribution. if yes ( you are lucky) then that should guide your analysis. for instance if the hazard is weibull, then you assume weibull distribution and then go forward from there.
