Statistical Inference in Dependent Component Hybrid Systems with Masked Data
Complex systems are usually composed of simple hybrid systems. In this paper,we consider statistical inference for two fundamental hybrid systems: series-parallel and parallel-series systems based on masked data. Assuming dependent lifetimes of components modelled by Marshall and Olkin's bivariate exponential distribution in the system, we present maximum likelihood and interval estimation of parameters of interest. Intensive simulation studies are performed to demonstrate the efficiency of the methods.
