In this paper, warranty cost models are presented based on the quasi-renewal processes and exponential distribution. Cost analyses are conducted for various systems under the basic assumption that a repair service is imperfect. We develop warranty cost models, reliability, and other measures for several systems, including multicomponent systems. This paper focuses on warranty cost analysis, including repairable products with a given warranty period considering conditional probabilities and renewal theory. The exponential distribution is used to analyze and obtain the warranty cost. Numerical examples are discussed to demonstrate the applicability of the methodology derived in this paper.
