Abstract:

Tests for exponential versus IFRA increasing failure rate average distributions based on incomplete data are defined and shown to be unbiased. The tests are motivated by a class of tests considered in detail by Bickel and Doksum. Tests for exponential versus IFR distributions based on the ranks of total time on test statistics are also considered.
