In a multi-sample experiment, we model the parameters of an equal load-sharing system by means of link functions in sequential order statistics models, and then discuss the estimation of these parameters based on a given link function. Different link functions are examined along with the corresponding maximum likelihood estimators, and their properties are studied both analytically and through Monte Carlo simulations.
