Can anyone suggest a way to run "Fit Life by X" when the form is

mu (log lifetime) = beta0 + X^(beta1)?

From running the reciprocal and custom relations, beta1 values between -1 and -2 seems to give the best fit to the observed failure times.

Many thanks!

The Nonlinear Model platform seems to work well. Carrying this beyond the original question, it looks as though I would need to create a 'dummy' X variable in order to combine two factors, e.g. Peck's Power-law humidity model.

Dr. Bill Meeker also pointed out that this model's parameters can also be obtained, in a different form, by using the Box-Cox relationship in the Fit Life By X platform and then using the distribution results sensitivity profiler to maximize lambda's likelihood and then re-running Box-Cox with that lambda. (Thanks Dr. Meeker!)

You cannot. Fit Life by X assumes the formula for mu is linear in beta's. I don't see whether this model has an equivalent form which is linear in beta's. I would suggest using Nonlinear to solve the problem.
