The inverse Gaussian distribution is considered as a lifetime model. First, the MLEs of the mean and shape parameters of the inverse Gaussian model are discussed, and s-confidence bounds for those parameters are given. Then the problem of obtaining s-confidence bounds for the reliability is considered for two cases: i) When the shape parameter is known and mean is unknown, s-confidence intervals for reliability are relatively easily derived. ii) If the shape parameter is unknown and mean is… CONTINUE READING
