Survival and reliability analysis; It deals with the "probability of survival of a machine, material or lively" and "the time until the end of it’s life". In these analyzes, it is very important to determine the probability distribution that will model the data in order to represent the data in the best way. In this study, a new probability distribution that can be used in this field is defined and statistical properties related to this distribution are obtained. The application was carried out on two different, real reliability data set and these data were compared with probability distributions previously used in modeling. It has been shown that the proposed distribution modelled the data much better than other distributions.
