The object of this paper is to obtain point and interval estimations for the parameters of the Weibull-exponential distribution (WED) based on step-stress partially accelerated life tests model with progressive type-II censoring (PRO-II-C). Maximum likelihood (ML) and Bayes estimation method are used to estimate the unknown parameters of WED and the acceleration factor. Moreover, the approximate confidence...
