Information, Vol.7, No.3, pp.417-430 (2004.5)

A new approach, for the estimation of the failure probability from a mixed model of inferior and quality populations for the case that the ratio of the inferior population to the quality populations is unknown, is introduced. The possible existence of a quality population in the mixed populations is investigated using the Akaike information criterion. The probability of failure after the screening test is then obtained.

Key Words
