## Simulating a progressive type-II censoring scheme

### Description

Simulates a progressive type-II censoring scheme.

### Usage

`rtype2(n, R, param, mle, cdf, lb = 0, ub = Inf)`

### Arguments

`n` |
Number of items placed on the test at time zero. |

`R` |
A vector that contains number |

`param` |
Character vector that contains the name of family's parameters. |

`mle` |
The maximum likelihood estimators of the parameters. |

`cdf` |
Expression for the cumulative distribution function. |

`lb` |
Lower bound of the family's support. That is zero by default. |

`ub` |
Upper bound of the family's support. That is |

### Value

A data frame with two columns including observed liftimes `X`

, and number of censored items `R`

.

### Examples

```
n <- 20
R <- c(9, rep(0, 10) )
param <- c("alpha","beta")
mle <- c(0.80, 12)
cdf <- quote( 1-exp( beta*(1-exp( x^alpha )) ) )
lb <- 0
ub <- Inf
rtype2(n = n, R = R, param = param, mle = mle, cdf = cdf, lb = lb, ub = ub)
