Abstract Assume that each component failure in a composite dynamic system can induce higher loading on surviving components, and then enhances the hazard rate of surviving components in system. In this study, the baseline lifetime distribution of system components is considered as Burr type XII distribution. The power-trend hazard rate function with sequential order statistics is used to characterize the hazard rate of components when the quality of components in the composite dynamic system is heterogeneous. Bayes estimators of model parameters are obtained by using Metropolis-Hasting Markov chain Monte Carlo (M-H MCMC) method. The application of the proposed M-H MCMC method is illustrated by using a numerical example.
