The objective of this paper is to provide a new estimation method for parametric models under progressive Type-I censoring. First, we propose a Kaplan-Meier nonparametric estimator of the reliability function taken at the censoring times. It is based on the observable number of failures, and the number of censored units occurring from the progressive censoring scheme at the censoring times. This estimator...
