Abstract : The problem of selecting populations, from two-parameters exponential populations, which are better than a standard under an ordering prior is investigated. If the negative exponential distribution is the model for lifetime, then the problem is to select all those populations for which the guarantee lifetimes are larger than that of a standard. Comparisons of these procedures based on the expected number of bad populations in the selected subset is investigated. Tables of associated constants for the proposed procedures are given. (Author)
