Optimal Combination RebateWarranty Policy with Second-hand Products

Abstract

With the increased awareness for sustainability, many engineered products are being recovered and reconditioned for secondary useful lives. These second-hand products can serve as replacement products to honour warranty pledges. This paper presents two mathematical models to determine the optimal combination rebate warranty policy when refurbished products are used for replacements from both the manufacturer and consumer point of views. Several numerical experiments are conducted to derive useful managerial knowledge.
