Stochastic comparison in MRL ordering for parallel systems with two exponential components. (English) Zbl 1409.60036
Summary: In this paper, we investigate the stochastic comparison of parallel systems with two independent exponential components in terms of mean-residual (MRL) ordering. We obtain a more general and reasonable sufficient condition for guaranteeing MRL ordering of the systems than the one given in some existing results in the literature.
