Monte Carlo simulations are used to investigate the maximum likelihood estimators for the parameters of the Weibull distribution using multicensored samples. For the case of unequal number of items censored, a single situation is considered. When the same number of items are removed at each test, several different estimators are compared for several values of the parameters.
