A new perspective of transmuted distribution


Regarding the concept of quadratic rank transmutation, a new distribution with convex combinations of the life distributions of two-component systems (series and parallel systems) whose component lifetimes are not identical is obtained. This proposed distribution has extra parameters compared to the known transmuted distribution. It can also be represented by two different baseline distributions. So, it is very flexible in modeling. A description of the various structural properties of the subject distribution along with its reliability behavior is provided. Finally, a real data analysis is performed for this distribution and it is found that this class is more flexible.
