Abstract:

The method of least-squares is used to develop linear, unbiased, conditional estimators for the location and scale parameters of the Weibull probability density function with known shape parameter. Tables are provided for computing estimators from 1 order statistics selected from the m smallest values of a sample of size n. A method is presented for computing simultaneous estimators directly from the conditional estimators. The tables include sample sizes from 2 to 13 for eleven values of shape parameter--0.50.252.00.54.0.
