On the Estimation of Reliability of Weighted Weibull Distribution: A Comparative Study

  •  Bander Al-Zahrani    


The paper gives a description of estimation for the reliability function of weighted Weibull distribution. The maximum likelihood estimators for the unknown parameters are obtained. Nonparametric methods such as empirical method, kernel density estimator and a modified shrinkage estimator are provided. The Markov chain Monte Carlo method is used to compute the Bayes estimators assuming gamma and Jeffrey priors. The performance of the maximum likelihood, nonparametric methods and Bayesian estimators is assessed through a real data set.
