Estimation of reliability in a shock model for a two component system


  • Kunchur, S. H.
  • Munoli, Surekha B.


The parallel system consisting of two components is subjected to random shocks from single source according to a Poisson process. The cumulative damage model with fixed threshold on each component is considered. For this model, the reliability function is obtained for a parallel system. The maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) and the uniformly minimum variance unbiased estimator (UMVUE) of the reliability function are obtained.
