Efficiency of Censored Reliability Studies

  • Robin Brooks
  • Published 1983 in IEEE Transactions on Reliability


The s-expected gain in information provided by an experiment is used to help assess the loss of s-information through censoring in reliability studies. Large sample, relative s-efficiencies of censored studies compared to complete studies are calculated assuming the lifetime distribution is Weibull. For example, when q, the proportion (if type II censoring… (More)
