Nonparametric bayes estimation of the reliability function of a coherent system

AKM Fazlur Rahman, Edsel A. Pena
2021 Journal of Statistical Research  
The resulting estimator of the system life distribution, which is a function of the nonparametric Bayes estimators of the components lifetime distributions, is compared in terms of bias and variance with  ...  A coherent system is composed of components, which could be modules or sub-systems, that interact with each other according to some structure function.  ...  Polpo and Pereira (2009) considered Bayesian estimation of reliability in parallel systems and Polpo et al. (2013) considered Bayesian estimation of reliabilities in a class of coherent systems.  ...

Bayesian Estimation of Component Reliability in Coherent Systems

Agatha S. Rodrigues, Felipe Bhering, Carlos A. De B. Pereira, Adriano Polpo
2018 IEEE Access  
The first step in statistical reliability studies of coherent systems is the estimation of the reliability of each system component.  ...  For the cases of parallel and series systems the literature is abundant. It seems that the present paper is the first that presents the general case of component inferences in coherent systems.  ...  for a class of coherent system.  ...

Reliability Estimation in Coherent Systems [article]

Agatha Rodrigues and Carlos Alberto Pereira and Adriano Polpo
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We will treat the reliability estimation of complex problems of two classes of coherent systems: series-parallel, and parallel-series.  ...  Nonparametric Bayesian estimators of all sub-distribution and distribution functions are derived, and a Dirichlet multivariate process as a prior distribution is presented.  ...  Considering this celebrated property, Polpo et al. (2013) introduced Bayesian nonparametric statistics for a class of coherent system in order to estimate components reliabilities.  ...

A Bayesian Parametric Test for Multichannel Adaptive Signal Detection in Nonhomogeneous Environments

Pu Wang, Hongbin Li, Braham Himed
2010 IEEE Signal Processing Letters  
The resulting detector is referred to as the Bayesian parametric adaptive matched filter (B-PAMF) which, compared with nonparametric Bayesian detectors, entails a lower training requirement and alleviates  ...  A Bayesian detector is proposed by incorporating some a priori knowledge of the disturbance covariance matrices, and exploring their inherent block-Toeplitz structure.  ...  More recently, a new class of Bayesian nonhomogeneous models for adaptive signal detection are introduced.  ...

The imprecise Dirichlet model

Jean-Marc Bernard
