Classification procedures of an observation into one of two exponential populations is considered. Assuming a known order between the population parameters, a class of classification rules is proposed. Our study shows that each classification rule in the class is better than the likelihood ratio based classification rule. Comparison of these classification rules with respect to correct probability of classification has been done by extensive simulations.
