Abstract

In this paper, a Nonhomogeneous Poisson Process (NHPP) reliability model based on the two-parameter Log-Logistic (LL) distribution is considered. The essential model’s characteristics are derived and represented graphically. The parameters of the model are estimated by the Maximum Likelihood (ML) and Non-linear Least Square (NLS) estimation methods for the case of time domain data. An application to show the flexibility of the considered model are conducted based on five real data sets and using three evaluation criteria. We hope this model will help as an alternative model to other useful reliability models for describing real data in reliability engineering area.
