The Kumaraswamy Inverse Weibull distribution has the ability to model failure rates that have unimodal shapes and are quite common in reliability and biological studies. The three-parameter Kumaraswamy Inverse Weibull distribution with decreasing and unimodal failure rate is introduced. We provide a comprehensive treatment of the mathematical properties of the Kumaraswany Inverse Weibull distribution and derive expressions for its moment generating function and the r-th generalized moment.

We also discuss a Bayesian approach for this distribution and an application was made for a real data set. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________
