The main objective of the present study is to find the estimation of the two Exponentiated Weibull distribution parameters, based on progressive Type II censored samples. The maximum likelihood and Bayes estimators for the two shape parameters and the scale parameter of the exponentiated Weibull lifetime model were derived. Bayes estimators was obtained by using both the symmetric and asymmetric loss functions via squared error loss and linex loss functions This was done with respect to the conjugate priors for two shape parameters. We used an approximation based on the Lindley (Trabajos de Estadistca) method for obtaining Bayes estimates under these loss functions. The different proposed estimators have been compared through an extensive simulation studies. Bayes ratings also turned out to be better than MLE. Whatever the sample sizes are, we get the same results.
