Confidence Intervals Using Censored Data
Using censored data from some life tests confidence intervals for the scale parameter of underlying life distributions are obtained. The life distributions are assumed to be Increasing Failure Rate (Decreasing Failure Rate) type. Some well known results of Epstein and Sobel on confidence intervals for the scale parameter of the exponential distribution are shown to be special cases. © 1976 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
