Z-number, a new concept related to reliability of the information, has two fuzzy components (A, B); the former is the value of the variable, and the latter is the reliability of the former. Axiomatic Design, providing a systematic search in design space to determine the best design alternative, has been widely applied in decision-making. In this paper, we extend Axiomatic Design by representing the reliability information with a Z-number, and demonstrate the applicability of the proposed method in a case study.
