Statistical analysis of a Weibull extension with bathtub-shaped failure rate function
We consider the parameter inference for a two-parameter life distribution with bathtub-shaped or increasing failure rate function. We present the point and interval estimations for the parameter of interest based on type-II censored samples. Through intensive Monte-Carlo simulations, we assess the performance of the proposed estimation methods by a comparison of precision. Example applications are demonstrated for the efficiency of the methods.
