Comparison Different Estimation Method for Reliability Function of Rayleigh Distribution Based On Fuzzy Lifetime Data
Keywords:Rayleigh Distribution, Fuzzy Reliability Function, Method of estimation Mean squared error
In this study, we present different methods of estimating fuzzy reliability of a two-parameter Rayleigh distribution via the maximum likelihood estimator, median first-order statistics estimator, quartile estimator, L-moment estimator, and mixed Thompson-type estimator. The mean-square error MSE as a measurement for comparing the considered methods using simulation through different values for the parameters and unalike sample sizes is used. The results of simulation show that the fuzziness values are better than the real values for all sample sizes, as well as the fuzzy reliability at the estimation of the Maximum likelihood Method, and Mixed Thompson Method perform better than the other methods in the sense of MSE, so that we recommend to use this type of estimation.
