A Progressive Interval Type-I Censored Life Test Plan for Rayleigh Distribution
In this paper, we have considered the problem of optimal inspection times for the progressive interval type-I censoring scheme where uncertainty in the process is governed by the two-parameter Rayleigh distribution. Here, we also introduced some optimality criterion and determined the optimum inspection times, accordingly. The effect of the number of inspections and choice of optimally spaced inspection times based on the asymptotic relative efficiencies of the maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters are also investigated. Further, we have discussed the optimal progressive type-I interval censoring plan when the inspection times and the expected proportions of total failures in the experiment are under control.
