A linear cumulative exposure model (LCEM) is used to analyze data from a step-stress accelerated-life-test, in particular, those with failure-free life (FFL). FFL is characterized by a location parameter in the distribution. For the 2-parameter Weibull distribution, the Nelson cumulative exposure model is a special case of LCEM. Under LCEM a general expression is derived for computing the maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) of stress-dependent distribution parameters under multiple censoring. The estimation procedure is simple and is illustrated by a set of experimental data using the 3-parameter Weibull distribution
