We discuss a new stochastic ordering for the sequence of independent random variables. It generalizes the stochastic precedence (SP) order that is defined for two random variables to the case n > 2. All conventional stochastic orders are transitive, whereas the SP order is not. Therefore, a new approach to compare the sequence of random variables had to be developed that resulted in the notion of the sequential precedence order. A sufficient condition for this order is derived and some examples are considered. Copyright © Cambridge University Press 2020.
