Abstract

In the reuse strategy the role of warranty to deal with quality uncertainty is critical to ensure market acceptance and the economic feasibility of reuse itself. However, up to now there are only a few studies investigating this role. This paper will elucidate the role of warranty in the reuse strategy by reviewing the functions of warranty and putting them into a reuse context. Since warranty analysis is heavily based on reliability and leads to potential additional future costs, a model for analyzing the reliability of reused products and the cost consequences will be presented. An example focusing on a renewing Free Replacement Warranty (FRW) policy will be given.
