The Weibull-Exponential Distribution: Its Properties and Applications

P.E. Oguntunde, O.S. Balogun, H.I. Okagbue and S.A. Bishop

Abstract:
A three parameter probability model, the so called Weibull-exponential distribution was proposed using the Weibull Generalized family of distributions. Some important models in the literature were found to be sub models of the new model. Explicit expressions for some of its basic mathematical properties like moments, moment generating function, reliability analysis, limiting behavior and order statistics were derived. The method of maximum likelihood estimation was proposed in estimating its parameters and real life applications were provided to illustrate its flexibility and potentiality over the exponential distribution.
