Abstract
The need to develop a tractable failure time distribution that can reflect the bathtub curve of mortality in the sense of having a decreasing failure rate initially, a constant failure rate thereafter and an increasing failure rate at the end, has not yet been satisfactorily met. We define a distribution for which such a bathtub property holds. The proposed distribution covers the exponential, the Rayleigh and a finite range DFR distribution, as particular cases. We also investigate some properties of the proposed distribution. © 1993.
