  • Abstract

    In this paper, the estimation for the bivariate generalized exponential (BVGE) distribution under type-I censored with constant stress accelerated life testing (CSALT) are discussed. The scale parameter of the lifetime distribution at constant stress levels is assumed to be an inverse power law function of the stress level. The unknown parameters are estimated by the maximum likelihood approach and their approximate variance-covariance matrix is obtained. Then, the numerical studies are introduced to illustrate the approach study using samples which have been generated from the bivariate generalized exponential distribution.

    Keywords: Accelerated life testing, Bivariate generalized exponential distribution, Constant stress, Type-I censoring, Maximum likelihood estimation.
