We consider estimation of the multicomponent stress-strength reliability under progressive Type II censoring under the assumption that stress and strength variables follow Burr XII distributions with a common shape parameter. Maximum likelihood estimates of the reliability are obtained along with asymptotic intervals when common shape parameter may be known or unknown. Bayes estimates are also derived under the squared error loss function using different approximation methods. Further, we obtain exact Bayes and uniformly minimum variance unbiased estimates of the reliability for the case common shape parameter is known. The highest posterior density intervals are also obtained. We perform Monte Carlo simulations to compare the performance of proposed estimates and present a discussion based on this study. Finally, two real data sets are analyzed for illustration purposes.
