Maximum likelihood estimates, confidence limits and tests of hypotheses are derived for the parameters of a Weibull process when some of the early failure times are censored. In some cases the resulting tests are found to be uniformly most powerful unbiased tests.
- Poisson Process
- Failure Time
- Intensity Function
- Repairable System
- Conditional Test
