Warranty Analysis: A Non-Parametric Approach

Madan Mohanrao Jagtap


Present work is to implement Non-Parametric Approach to warranty. Basic idea is while servicing product in warranty period against claim of customer, recording data for claim and frequency of claim helps in finding major problem in product. First time failure data available with dealers for consecutive five months which can be consider as data set for warranty analysis. Repair per thousand(R/1000), cumulative hazard rate and cost per unit (CPU) compares Month in service (MIS) of product for each manufacturing month, can be considered as non-parametric analysis of warranty data. It helps in finding variation product failure and cost related with it.
