This paper investigates the optimal production policy and maintenance strategy for leased equipment under a lease contract with warranty periods. In order to have steady revenue, the lessor (owner) of the equipment may provide guaranty periods to encourage the lessee to sign a lease contract with a longer lease period. Under this production/maintenance scheme, the mathematical model of the expected total cost is developed and the optimal production planning and the corresponding optimal maintenance policy are derived by choosing the optimal warranty periods for the lessee in order to minimize the total cost. The influence of the production rates variation in the equipment degradation is considered by an increasing failure rate according to both time and production rates. The impact of warranty periods on optimal maintenance planning will be studied thereafter. Finally, numerical examples are given to illustrate the analytical study and the effects of the warranty periods variation during the lease periods on the maintenance policy and consequently on the total cost.
