A Nomogram for Estimating the Three Parameters of the Weibull Distribution

Summary: A nomogram based on the method of moments is given for estimating the three parameters of the Weibull distribution. Iterative procedures for parameter estimation using digital computers require initial estimates of the parameters. An empirical procedure useful in providing these estimates is described. Simulated data obtained from Weibull populations provides examples illustrating the use of both the nomogram and the empirical procedure.
