Abstract:

A formulation is given and a procedure is proposed for constructing a confidence interval for a certain ordered location or scale parameter and for simultaneously selecting all populations having parameters equal or larger than this ordered parameter with a preassigned minimal probability. The well-known indifference-zone formulation of the ranking problem is obtained as a special case as is the problem of interval estimation of an ordered parameter.
