Abstract

This article considers the determination of the optimal burn-in time, the degree of preventive maintenance, and the preventive maintenance interval (or, equivalently, the number of preventive maintenance actions) for warranted products with time-dependent maintenance costs. The expected cost function is derived by adopting an appropriate age-reduction model and the determination of the optimal joint solution is discussed. Finally, the impact of providing a burn-in/preventive maintenance program is evaluated through numerical examples.
