In this study, it is considered that the shape of membership function and the values of parameters are arbitrary, hence reliability parameters will be arbitrary, and some data are even absurd from the point of view of real life practice. An applied fuzzy reliability theory is applied to practical engineering problem. Method of fuzzy reliability evaluation are developed.

Keywords- Fuzzy reliability, Membership function, Permitted wear fuzzy value.
