Machine interference is an important problem frequently encountered in production and manufacturing operations such as semiconductor manufacturing and maintenance operations. Due to uncontrollable factors, parameters in the machine interference problem may be fuzzy. This paper proposes a mathematical programming approach to construct the membership function of the performance measure of the machine interference system with the machine breakdown rate and the service rate being fuzzy numbers.
