In this paper, we discuss dierent predictors of times to failure of units censored in multiple stages in a progressively censored sample from proportional hazard rate models. The maximum likelihood predictors, best unbiased predictors and conditional median predictors are considered. We also consider Bayesian point predictors for the times to failure of units. A numerical example and a Monte Carlo simulation study are presented to illustrate all the prediction methods discussed in this paper.
