In the present communication, we discuss some reliability properties of mean inactivity time order and study the preservation of mean inactivity time under some weight function. Weighted Distribution methods arise in the context of research related to reliability, data gathering, ecology, inference, modeling, bio-medicine and several other areas. In general, weighted distributions have wide role for the analysis of life time data.
