Thermodynamic properties of the mixed spin-3/2 and spin-1/2 Heisenberg model are examined within the Oguchi approximation in the presence of a random crystal-field (RCF). The RCF is either introduced with probability p or turned off with probability 1-p randomly. The thermal variations of the global magnetization and free energy of the system are investigated to construct the phase diagrams for the classical, quantum and anisotropic cases. Different results revealed that no qualitative changes

This phenomenon has a strong decreasing effect on the critical temperature which becomes much lower than in the classical case. In the presence of an external field, it was observed that coercivity and remanence decrease in a wide range of the absolute temperature.
