Main Article Content

Ayed R.A. Alanzi


Acquiring Bayesian prediction intervals for the first and final points of observation with the bathtub-shape distribution of the failure rate life-time type under the conditions of available outliers is the focus of the research. These bounds of predication acquired on the basis of the right Type-II censored sample. The procedure is presented with the help of a wide range of illustrative example.
