We provide an expression for the Shannon entropy of mixed r-out-of-n systems when the lifetimes of the components are independent and identically distributed. The expression gives the system’s entropy in terms of the system signature, the distribution and density functions of the lifetime model, and the information measures of the beta distribution. Bounds for the system’s entropy are obtained by direct applications of the concavity of the entropy and the information inequality.
