In this paper, the geometric process is introduced as a constant-stress accelerated model to analyze a series of life data that obtained from several increasing stress levels. The geometric process (GP) model is assumed when the lifetime of test units follows an extension of the exponential distribution. Based on progressive censoring, the maximum likelihood estimates (MLEs) and Bayes estimates (BEs) of the model parameters are obtained. Moreover, a real dataset is analyzed to illustrate the proposed procedures. In addition, the approximate, bootstrap and credible confidence intervals (CIs) of the estimators are constructed. Finally, simulation studies are carried out to investigate the precision of the MLEs and BEs for the parameters involved.
