In the present paper, we introduce generalized measure of 'useful' R-norm inaccuracy having two parameters and its analogue 'useful' R-norm total ambiguity measure by merging together the concepts of probability, fuzziness, R-norm, 'useful' information and inaccuracy. Along with the basic properties, some other important properties of these two proposed measures are stated. These measures are generalizations of some well-known inaccuracy measures. Further, the monotonic behaviour of the proposed 'useful' R-norm inaccuracy measures is studied and the graphical overview is given. The measure of information improvement for both the measures is also obtained. Lastly, the application of 'useful' R-norm total ambiguity measure is presented in terms of multi-criteria decision making. For all the numerical calculations R software is used.
