On the reliability of a two component system
Isha Dewan and N.N. Midhu
In this paper, we propose a non-parametric estimator of the reliability of a system with two independent components. The estimator is motivated from an approximation of the survival function. We derive the exact distribution of the proposed estimator. The new estimator is shown to be consistent and has asymptotically standard normal distribution. Simulation studies are also carried out to assess the performance of the proposed estimator.
