Warranty analysis of a two-component system with type I stochastic dependence
Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part O: Journal of Risk and Reliability
This article develops the warranty cost analysis of a two-component in-series system with stochastic dependence. From the perspectives of both the manufacturer and the consumer, the short-run total profits and costs under the non-renewing free replacement (non-renewing free replacement warranty) policy and the renewing free replacement warranty policy are derived, respectively. Numerical examples are given showing the impact of the failure dependence to both the consumer and the manufacturer.
