Abstract : In this paper ranking and subset selection procedures for exponential populations with respect to the largest location and scale parameters are proposed. The data are assumed to be generated from Type-I and Type-II censoring mechanisms. The selection procedure proposed for the largest scale parameter based on Type-II censored data is equivalent to Gupta's procedure for gamma populations. Two procedures proposed for the selection of the largest location parameter under Type-I censoring and Type-II censoring are asymptotically equivalent.
