Abstract: Progressively type II censoring schemes have become quite popular in reliability and lifetime-testing studies. We estimate the maximum product of spacings estimators (MPSE) of Inverse Weibull Distribution (IW) based on progressively type II censored data. Asymptotic confidence intervals are also proposed. Bayes estimates and credible intervals of the unknown parameters are obtained under the assumption of gamma priors on the unknown parameters. Different methods are compared using Monte Carlo simulations. One real data set is analyzed for illustrative purposes.
