Analysis of Type-II progressively hybrid censored data
The mixture of Type-I and Type-II censoring schemes, called the hybrid censoring scheme is quite common in life-testing or reliability experiments. Recently Type-II progressive censoring scheme becomes quite popular for analyzing highly reliable data. One drawback of the Type-II progressive censoring scheme is that the length of the experiment can be quite large. In this paper we introduce a Type-II progressively hybrid censoring scheme, where the experiment terminates at a pre-specified time. For this censoring scheme, we analyze the data under the assumptions that the lifetimes of the different items are independent and exponentially distributed random variables with parameter . We obtain the maximum likelihood estimator of the unknown parameter in an exact form. Asymptotic confidence intervals based on ^, ln ^, confidence interval based on likelihood ratio test and two bootstrap confidence intervals are also proposed. Bayes estimate and credible interval of the unknown parameter ar...
