Abstract Most consumer durable products are used intermittently and the usage is best modelled as a point process in time. Also, the failure of an item is a function of the number of times the item has been used rather than its age. As a result, the item failure is better characterized through a discrete distribution. In this paper we develop a new model for item usage and item failure based on the above characterization and obtain the expected cost of servicing warranty per unit when the product is sold with warranty.
