Inference in the Pareto distribution based on progressive Type II censoring with random removals
AbstractThis study considers the estimation problem for the Pareto distribution based on progressive Type II censoring with random removals. The number of units removed at each failure time has a discrete uniform distribution. We are going to use the maximum likelihood method to obtain the estimator of parameter. The expectation and variance of the maximum likelihood estimator will be derived. The expected time required to complete such an experiment will be computed. Some numerical results of expected test times are carried out for this type of progressive censoring and other sampling schemes.
