Abstract:

The statistical estimation of the reliability of a simple system, subject to exponential failures and subsequent repairs, is considered. Observations are assumed taken at isolated instants snapshots, and for also continuous periods of time patches the information is combined by maximum likelihood. Procedures for improving small-sample properties of estimates are studied by Monte Carlo sampling experiments. The robustness of the estimates is similarly considered. Author
