Kernel-based Estimation of Ageing Intensity Function: Properties and Applications
The notion of ageing plays an important role in reliability and survival analysis as it is an inherent property of all systems and products. Jiang, Ji, and Xiao (2003) proposed a new quantitative measure, known as ageing intensity (AI) function, an alternative measure
to study the ageing pattern of probability models. In this paper, we propose a nonparametric estimator for ageing intensity function. Asymptotic properties of the estimator are established under suitable regularity conditions. A set of simulation studies are carried
out based on various probability models to examine the performance of estimator and to establish its efficiency over the classical estimator. The usefulness of the estimator is also examined through a real data set.
