This article contains two prediction intervals applicable to a 2-parameter as well as a 1-parameter exponential distribution. One can be used to predict a future sample range on the basis of an observed sample range. Appropriate prediction factors are tabulated. The other can be used to predict a waiting time between two future successive failures on the basis of an observed waiting time between two previous successive failures. © 1992 IEEE
