Abstract:

This report presents a summary of our research under the project entitled Life testing and reliability with applications in engineering systems. Directions of our major advances include an extensions of the classical stress-strength reliability analyses so as to include informations on the covariates efficiency studies of the modified least squares estimators in accelerated life tests inferences to compare two exponential distributions with jointly censored samples study of moment properties of the hazard-rate functions and evaluation of the exact Fisher information in censored data study of the properties of Box-Cox transformations in light of Kullback-Liebler information, and providing guidance for the choice of a transformation of life data towards improved model fitting and inferences.
