In this paper, the two-parameter Pareto lifetime distribution is considered with vague shape and scale parameters, where parameters are set as generalized intuitionistic fuzzy numbers. A new LR type intuitionistic fuzzy number is introduced, and cuts of the new fuzzy set are provided. The generalized intuitionistic fuzzy reliability characteristics such as reliability, conditional reliability, hazard rate and mean time to failure functions are defined, along with the special case of the two-parameter Pareto generalized intuitionistic fuzzy reliability analysis. Furthermore, the series and parallel system reliability are evaluated by the generalized intuitionistic fuzzy sets. Finally, for certain cases of the fuzzy shape and scale parameters and cut set values, the generalized intuitionistic fuzzy reliability characteristics are provided and compared through several illustrative plots.
