Tables for Obtaining Weibull Confidence Bounds and Tolerance Bounds Based on Best Linear Invariant Estimates of Parameters of the Extreme-Value Distribution

Tables are given for obtaining confidence bounds for the two parameters and the 90th, 95th, and 99th percentiles of the two-parameter Weibull or extreme-value distribut.ions. The tables are based on… Expand

Point and Interval Estimation Procedures for the Two-Parameter Weibull and Extreme-Value Distributions

- N. Mann
- Mathematics

On evaluation of warranty assurance when life has a Weibull distribution

- N. Mann, S. Saunders
- Mathematics
- 1 December 1969

Abstract : A two parameter Weibull model with neither parameter known is assumed for failure time. A value is specified for the probability that no failures, in a lot of identically distributed… Expand

Best Linear Invariant Estimation for Weibull Parameters Under Progressive Censoring

- N. Mann
- Mathematics
- 1 August 1971

Best linear invariant estimators of log reliable life are derived for a model in which failure times have a two-parameter Weibull distribution and removal of some surviving items from life test is… Expand
