A new generalization of the transmuted additive Weibull distribution is proposed by using the quadratic rank transmutation map, the so-called transmuted exponentiated additive Weibull distribution. It retains the characteristics of a good model. It is more flexible, being able to analyze more complex data; it includes twenty-seven sub-models as special cases and it is interpretable. Several mathematical properties of the new distribution as closed forms for ordinary and incomplete moments, quantiles, and moment generating function are presented, as well as the MLEs. The usefulness of the model is illustrated by using two real data sets.
