In this paper it was proposed to use the PSO algorithm to estimate the time interval of the Cox process. The results of the proposed method of estimation were compared with the maximum likelihood estimator of estimating the rate of occurrence. The research included a realistic application in which the successive operating periods between two consecutive stops of the raw material mill in per day (from the General Company for Northern Cement / Cement Badush new plant) during the period from 1/4/2018 to 31/1/2019. The average time for machine operating periods was estimated by the methods proposed for use in the research,
