Statistics Seminars: What can warranty data tell?

Presented by Shaomin Wu, Cranfield University

28 November 2011 14:00 in CM221

Warranty claims and supplementary data contain useful information about product quality and reliability. Analysing such data can therefore be of benefit to manufacturers in identifying early warnings of abnormalities in their products, providing useful information about failure modes to aid design modification, and forecasting future warranty claims needed for preparing fiscal plans.

This presentation will review the research and developments in warranty data analysis with emphasis on the work we have completed, and conclude with a discussion on current practices and possible future trends.
