Support Vector Machine (SVM) is a new but prospective technique which has been used in pattern recognition, data mining, etc. Taking the advantage of Kernel function, maximum margin and Lanrangian optimization method, SVM has high application potential in reliability data analysis. This paper introduces the principle and some concepts of SVM. One extension of regular SVM named Support Vector Regression (SVR) is discussed. SVR is dedicated to solve continuous problem. This paper uses SVR to predict reliability for repairable system. Taking an equipment from Swedish railway industry as a case, it is shown that the SVR can predict (Time to Failure) TTF accurately and its prediction performance can outperform Artificial Neural Network (ANN).
