The two parameter generalized exponential distribution (which is denoted by GE(α,λ)) was introduced by Gupta and Kundu (1999). In this article, maximum likelihood estimators (MLE’s) for the two unknown parameters of the generalized exponential (GE) distribution are obtained based on lower record values. Also, we obtained the Bayes Estimators of the unknown parameters of the generalized exponential distribution using Lindley’s approximation (L-approximation) under symmetric and asymmetric loss functions. Further, we have derived the Bayesian prediction for the future record values. Numerical computations are presented to illustrate the results of estimation and prediction using R software.
