Bayesian accelerated life test plans for series systems with Weibull component lifetimes

This article presents optimal Bayesian accelerated life test plans for series systems under Type-I censoring scheme. First, the component lifetimes are assumed to follow independent Weibull distributions. The scale parameters of Weibull lifetime distributions are related to the external stress varia...(Read Full Abstract)
