The paper deals with reliability and profit function analysis of a three non-identical unit complex system model with two modes- Normal and Total failure of each unit. The units are named as A, B and C and arranged in such a way that the system failure occurs only if either unit-A or both the units B and C fail totally i.e. the units B and C are arranged in parallel network and this parallel sub-system of units B and C is arranged with unit-A in series network. The failure of units B and C are mutually dependent, i.e., if one of them is failed then other shares the load of failed unit. The failure time distribution of unit-A and the distributions of time to repair of ullit- B and Care taken exponential while the distribution of time to repair of unit-A and the failure time distribution of unit-B and C when one of them is failed are assessed to be general, By using supplementary variable technique, the various important measures of system effectiveness have been obtained.
