This study deals with the classical and Bayesian estimation of reliability in a multicomponent stress-strength model by assuming that both stress and strength variables follow exponentiated Pareto distribution. First, the maximum likelihood method is used to estimate reliability. The asymptotic confidence interval is constructed. We also propose two bootstrap confidence intervals. Next, the Bayesian estimates of reliability are obtained using Lindley's approximation, Tierney-Kadane approximation and the Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method since there are no explicit forms. The MCMC method is used to construct the Bayesian credible interval. A Monte Carlo simulation study is performed to compare the performance of the corresponding methods. Finally, the hydrological data set is analyzed in the application part.
