Djamaludin, I., Murthy, D.N.P. and Kim, C.S. (2001) Warranty and preventative maintenance. International Journal of Reliability, Quality and Safety Engineering, 82: 89-107. doi:10.1142/S0218539301000396
For products sold with warranty, preventive maintenance actions by manufacturers and/or buyers have an impact on the total costs for both parties. This paper develops a framework to study preventive maintenance actions when items are sold under warranty and reviews the models that have appeared in the literature. It then develops a new model and carries out its analysis.
