Abstract

This paper, discusses the problem of partially step-stress ALTs (accelerated life tests) form Rayleigh competing risks model. Type-II censored scheme is used in obtaining the observed censoring data. The method of MLE (maximum likelihood estimation) of the model parameters for point and approximate confidence intervals are considered. Also, bootstrap confidence intervals of model parameters are discussed. Simulation study is adopted to assess and compare our proposed method. Finally, some comment to illustrate the behavior of numerical results.
