The present paper provides the non-Newtonian fluid flow between two fixed parallel horizontal plates. A mathematical model is developed to describe the fluid motion. The fluid is assumed to depend exponentially on viscosity. The governing equations are non-dimensionalized and the steady state equations are solved numerically using shooting method technique. The effect of the nature of the non-constant viscosity of a function of the space variable y shows much influence on the velocity fields.
