E-Bayesian Estimation Method and its Applications in Reliability Engineering
Evaluation method of reliability of industrial products needs to be improved effectively with the advance of science and technology. This paper introduces a new method, named E-Bayesian estimation method, to estimate failure probability in reliability engineering. The definition of E-Bayesian estimation of the failure probability is provided, moreover, the formulas of E-Bayesian estimation and hierarchical Bayesian estimation of the failure probability were provided, and properties of the E-Bayesian estimation, i.e. relations between E-Bayesian estimation and hierarchical Bayesian estimation, are also provided. Finally, calculation on practical problems shows that the provided method is feasible and easy to perform.
