Abstract

In reliability analysis, censoring is often preferred due to cost and time restrictions. It is well-known that a hybrid censoring scheme is a mixture of conventional type-I and type-II censoring schemes. In this study, we deal with the problem of the point and interval estimation of parameter for inverse Rayleigh distribution based on the type-I hybrid censored samples. We consider the method of maximum likelihood to estimate the parameter of inverse Rayleigh distribution by using the expectation maximization algorithm. Furthermore, the approximate confidence interval based on the maximum likelihood estimator is obtained by using Fisher information. We also performed a Monte Carlo simulation study to evaluate the performance of the maximum likelihood estimator under hybrid censoring for different sizes of samples.
