I'm looking for references to read about gamma distribution and applications in industry or in quality control. I had a look at statistical methods for reliability data (Meeker and Escobar). It has some good background about gamma and other lifetime distributions but I couldn't find examples of the applications.
OK, here is an single application of the gamma distribution under monotonic decreasing conditions with a heavier than exponential tail to first order pharmacokinetics drugs and for quantifying kidney function in multiple papers:
If I bump into others, I will add on.
