Some tests against aging based on the total time on test transform

Abstract [en]

Let F be a life distribution with survival function F = 1 - F and00 —finite mean y * j n F(x)dx. The scaled total time on test transform-1F( t ) —<P,,(t) = /n /F(x)dx/y was introduced by Barlow and Campo (1975) as ar Utool in the statistical analysis of life data. The properties IFR, IFRA, NBUE, DMRL and heavy-tailedness can be translated to properties of tp„(t).rWe discuss the previously known of these relationships and present some new results. Guided by properties of <P„(t) we suggest some test statisticsrfor testing exponentiality against IFR, IFRA, NBUE, DMRL and heavy-tailed-ness, respectively. The asymptotic distributions of the statistics are derived and the asymptotic efficiencies of the tests are studied. The power for some of the tests is estimated by simulation for some alternatives when the sample size is n = 10 or n = 20.

Abstract [en]

A life distribution and its survival function F = 1 - F with finitemean y = /q F(x)dx are said to be HNBUE (HNWUE) if F(x)dx < (>)U exp(-t/y) for t > 0. The major part of this thesis deals with the classof HNBUE (HNWUE) life distributions. We give different characterizationsof the HNBUE (HNWUE) property and present bounds on the moments and on thesurvival function F when this is HNBUE (HNWUE). We examine whether theHNBUE (HNWUE) property is preserved under some reliability operations andstudy some test statistics for testing exponentiality against the HNBUE(HNWUE) property.The HNBUE (HNWUE) property is studied in connection with shock models.Suppose that a device is subjected to shocks governed by a counting processN = {N(t): t > 0}. The probability that the device survives beyond t isthen00H(t) = S P(N(t)=k)P, ,k=0where P^ is the probability of surviving k shocks. We prove that His HNBUE (HNWUE) under different conditions on N and * ^orinstance we study the situation when the interarrivai times between shocksare independent and HNBUE (HNWUE).We also study the Pure Birth Shock Model, introduced by A-Hameed andProschan (1975), and prove that H is IFRA and DMRL under conditions whichdiffer from those used by A-Hameed and Proschan.Further we discuss relationships between the total time on test transformHp^(t) = /q ^F(s)ds , where F \t) = inf { x: F(x) > t}, and differentclasses of life distributions based on notions of aging. Guided by propertiesof we suggest test statistics for testing exponentiality agains t IFR,IFRA, NBUE, DMRL and heavy-tailedness. Different properties of these statisticsare studied.Finally, we discuss some bivariate extensions of the univariate properties NBU, NBUE, DMRL and HNBUE and study some of these in connection with bivariate shock models.
