A stress-strength model is formulated for a multi-component system consisting of k identical components. The k components of the system with random strengths (X1, X2, …, Xk) are subjected to one of the r random stresses (Xk+1, Xk+2, …, X k+r). The estimation of system reliability based on maximum likelihood estimates (MLEs) and Bayes estimators in k component system are obtained when the system is either parallel or series with the assumption that strengths and stresses follow exponential distribution. A simulation study is conducted to compare MLE and Bayes estimator through the mean squared errors of the estimators
