Sung, K., Kim, J., Sung, D., and Kim, H., "Warranty Data Analysis Method using Life Table and Its Practical Application," SAE Technical Paper 2015-01-0431, 2015, doi:10.4271/2015-01-0431.
This study examined various warranty data analysis methods to identify and study the one most suitable for Hyundai Motor warranty data. The drawbacks of the conventional life table method were overcome to develop an analysis method optimized for vehicle characteristics. The proposed method was examined for its suitability to various applications, such as providing the information necessary for determining the service life of parts, verifying the effects of design changes, and designing warranty and maintenance policies. The analysis data used in this study were derived from the 10-year powertrain parts warranty data of vehicles sold in the USA, South Korea, and China.
