Ranking And Selection Of Ifr Populations Based On Means
Consider k(k ≥ 2) increasing failure rate (IFR) populations which differ only in their scale parameters. A multiple decision approach is taken to the problem of ranking and selection of these populations with respect to the means. The procedures are based on the wellknown statistic of Epstein and Sobel . It is shown that the probability of correction selection using these procedures is greater than or equal to the corresponding probability of correct selection for exponential populations. Hence, exact but somewhat conservative solutions are obtained. © 1976, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
