Executive summaries of IIE Transactions and The Engineering Economist

Edited by Susan Albin and Joseph C. Hartman

This month our research highlights focus on reliability and warrantees. The first summary presents a method to determine whether it is worthwhile, and if so how much, to upgrade secondhand products before they are sold and the warranty contract begins. The second summary estimates system reliability by allocating testing resources to various component types. These articles will appear in the February issue of IIE Transactions (Volume 44, No. 7).
