Prediction of future failures for generalized exponential distribution under type-I or type-II hybrid censoring. (English) Zbl 1362.62181

Summary: In this paper, we consider the prediction of a future observation based on either Type-I or Type-II hybrid censored samples when the lifetime distribution of the experimental units is assumed to be a generalized exponential random variable. Different point and interval predictors are obtained using classical and Bayesian approaches. Monte Carlo simulations are performed to compare the performances of the different methods, and the analysis of one data set has been presented for illustrative purposes.
