The Comparison Between the MLE and Standard Bayes Estimators of the Reliability Function of Exponential Distribution


In this paper, a Monte Carlo Simulation technique is used to compare the performance ofMLE and the standard Bayes estimators of the reliability function of the one parameterexponential distribution. Two types of loss functions are adopted, namely, squared error lossfunction (SELF) and modified square error loss function (MSELF) with informative and noninformativeprior. The criterion integrated mean square error (IMSE) is employed to assessthe performance of such estimators.
