This chapter revisits modelling of warranty/maintenance costs under the assumption that both, the warranty repairs and the maintenance actions, require nonnegligible completion time. We provide an intuition on this topic by summarising our previous results, as well as the published work of other authors. We closely examine a case study that provides an excellent motivation for extending the research in this area. Also, again assuming non-negligible repair and maintenance times, we propose a simulation model for the expected warranty costs that integrates the concepts of reliability improvement and warranty.We conclude with a discussion on new directions for future research.
