For real engineering systems, it is sometimes difficult to obtain sufficient data to estimate the precise values of some parameters in reliability analysis. This kind of uncertainty is called epistemic uncertainty. Because of the epistemic uncertainty, traditional universal generating function (UGF) technique is not appropriate to analyze the reliability of systems with performance sharing mechanism...
