Farmelo, Gene R.
MetadataShow full item record
The assumption of a linear increasing failure rate uniquely determines a life distribution which has mathematically tractable qualities. The pertinent features of this distribution are derived and listed in the paper. Three methods of estimating the two parameters of the linear increasing failure rate are derived. For each procedure a computer program is provided which performs the necessary calculations. Results utilizing simulated failure data are listed for two of the methods of parameter estimation.
