This thesis sets out to model, from the manufacturer's point of view, the warranty cost of a repairable product. The product can be a complex one made up of numerous components, all of which are replaced upon failure and are non-repairable. The warranty cost model is used to extrapolate the cost when the warranty is extended. Both point and interval estimates of the current and extended warranty costs are evaluated in this study.
