Description

In this paper, we propose a new method to analyze fuzzy consecutive-k-out-of-n:F system reliability using fuzzy GERT. The triangular fuzzy numbers are used to fuzzify probabilities of the consecutive-k-out-of-n:F system and the interval arithmetic, alpha-cuts and an index of optimism lambda are applied to compute fuzzy consecutive-k-out-of-n:F system reliability on the fuzzy GERT network. Furthermore, we can obtain all computation results by "Mathematica" package.
