Paper Title:

System Reliability using Generalized Intuitionistic Fuzzy Exponential Lifetime Distribution

Abstract:  The aim of this paper is investigates the reliability characteristics of systems using generalized intuitionistic fuzzy exponential lifetime distribution, in which the lifetime parameter is assumed to be generalized intuitionistic fuzzy number. Generalized intuitionistic fuzzy reliability, generalized intuitionistic fuzzy hazard function, generalized intuitionistic fuzzy mean time to failure and their (α_1,α_2)-cut have been discussed when systems follow generalized intuitionistic fuzzy exponential lifetime distribution. Further, reliability analysis of the series and parallel systems has been done.

generalized intuitionistic fuzzy number (GIFN), (α_1,α_2)-cut, generalized intuitionistic fuzzy distribution, generalized intuitionistic fuzzy reliability.
