Abstract

This paper discusses Bayes nonparametric estimation of time-dependent failure rates. A point and an interval estimate of the quantiles of the failure process are given for both complete and censored samples. The prior degree of-belief about the failure rate is expressed in the form of a hypothetical sample. A numerical example is discussed.
