Abstract: Properties of a finite‐range failure‐time distribution, that includes the exponential as a particular case, have been studied. The distribution is IFR when the shape parameter exceeds unity, but is IFRA always. For a given value of the shape parameter, the distribution is NBUE over a segment of its range. Estimators of parameters have been derived. Distributions of two‐component series, parallel, and standby system lives have also been worked out.
