ESTIMATION OF A NUMBER OF ERRORS IN CASE OF REPETITIVE
Abstract: The estimation of a number of defects of a specified part of a homogeneous product
is considered. A natural estimator, although well justified by a heuristical reasoning, is proved
to be asymptotically biased. This leads to the proposal of a modified asymptotically unbiased
estimator. The asymptotic variances of both estimator are derived and compared with the
results of a Monte-Carlo study.
