In the literature of life-testing, general progressive censoring has been studied extensively. But, all the results have been developed under the key assumption that the units under
test are independently distributed. In this paper, we study general progressively Type-II censored order statistics arising from identical units under test which are jointly distributed according to an Archimedean copula with completely monotone generator (GPCOSARCM-II). Density, distribution and joint density functions of GPCOSARCM-II are all derived. Finally, some examples of GPCOSARCM-II are provided.
