Inferences for P(Y less than X) for Weibull Distribution Based on Censored Samples
by Abd Elfattah, A. M. and Marwa O. Mohamed.
his paper deals with the estimation of R = P(Y less than X) where X and Y
are two independent Weibull distributions with different scale parameters
but having the same shape parameter. The results are based on censored data.
Different methods for estimating R are proposed. The MLE, UMVUE and Bayes
estimators are obtained. A numerical illustration presented to compare the different
proposed estimators. The confidence interval of R is also obtained.
Maximum likelihood estimator; Unbiasedness; Consistency;
Uniform minimum variance unbiased estimator; Bayesian estimator;
Pivotal quantity; Fisher information
