The traditional Weibull distribution is, however, unable to model the complete lifetime of systems with a bathtub-shaped failure rate function. In this paper, a new model, which is useful for modeling this type of failure rate function, is presented. The model can also be seen as a generalization of the Weibull distribution. Parameter estimation methods are studied for this new distribution. Examples and results of comparison are shown to illustrate the applicability of this new model. © 2002 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.||Source Title:||Reliability Engineering and System Safety||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/54431||ISSN:||09518320||DOI:||10.1016/S0951-8320(02)00022-4|
