Abstract

Recently the nonparametric predictive approach to inference for competing risks was introduced by Maturi et al. (2010, J. Risk Reliab. 224, 11–26). In this paper further results for such inferences are presented, with focus on four important and closely related aspects. First, the effect of defined failure modes which thus far have not yet caused failures is studied. Second, the effect of re-defining (groups of) failure modes is considered, followed by a discussion of possible unknown, so undefined, failure modes. Finally, the effect of removal of failure modes is illustrated.
