Type-II progressive censoring is one of the censoring methods frequently used in clinical studies, reliability trials, quality control of products and industrial experiments. Sometimes in Type-II progressive censoring experiments, the failure rate is low so the waiting time to observe the failure will be very long; however, the experimenter may have to terminate the experiment before a predetermined time. In this article, if two generalized types of Type-II progressive censoring are reminded, we then make some changes in the removal method of Type-II progressive censoring such that without reducing the deduction quality, the termination time of the experiment decreases. This can be done with decreasing withdraws throughout the steps of the experiment with a special reasonable method. A simulation study is done and the results are tabulated at the end of this article for a comparison between introduced method and Type-II progressive censoring.
