Many authors have utilized an exponential distribution because of its wide applicability in reliability engineering and statistical inferences (see Bain & Engelhart(1987) and Saunders & Mann(1985)). Here we are considering the parametric estimation in an exponential distribution when its scale and location parametes are linear functions of a known exposure level t, which often occurs in the engineering and physical phenomena.
