Abstract

In this study, the Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MLE) and Bayes estimation are exploited to make interval estimation based on adaptive progressive Type-II censoring for the Burr Type-XII distribution. Explicit form for the parameters of Bayes estimator doesn’t exist, so, Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method is used as approximation to find posterior mean under squared error loss function. Real data set are presented to illustrate the methods of inference.
