Abstract: We have proposed a new generalized Weibull-exponential frailty model which is a general case of classical frailty model suggested by [1] and [2]. In classical frailty model, modeling of hazard rate is considered whereas, in this paper, direct modeling of conditional survival function given the frailty is considered. Simulation study is carried out using E-M algorithm using MATLAB programme. Further we implemented the suggested model on a real life data. As an illustration, we have fitted the model to the data given in [3] which examines the strength of isolated carbon fiber under tensile aload.
