The present study deals with the classical and Bayesian estimation of the progressive Type-II censored samples under assumption that the lifetimes follow the mixture of Weibull and Lomax distributions. We consider the maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) and Bayes estimator of the parameters under symmetric square error (SE), the asymmetric linear exponential (LINEX) and general entropy (GE) loss functions, by using the approximation forms of Lindley approximation and Tierney and Kadane (T-K) approximation. Simulation study is used to illustrate the discussed methodology.
