Title: Pitman Closeness as a Criterion for the Determination of the Optimal Progressive Censoring Scheme
Author(s): Katherine Davies*+ and William Volterman and N. Balakrishnan
Companies: University of Manitoba and McMaster University and McMaster University
Address: Department of Statistics, Winnipeg, MB, R3T 2N2, Canada
Keywords: progressive censoring ; Pitman closeness ; BLUE ; optimal censoring scheme

In a progressive Type-II censoring experiment when the underlying distribution is one-parameter exponential, the distribution of the Best Linear Unbiased Estimator (BLUE) is free of the progressive censoring scheme. As such, many criteria comparing BLUEs fail to identify an optimal censoring scheme. We consider here the problem of finding the optimal progressive censoring scheme for the exponential distribution according to Pitman closeness criterion.
