Abstract:

The expanded use of a warranty to ehnance reliability and maintainability is being considered. The identification of problem areas in the past as they have come before the courts and Board serves as guide to any future expansion in the area of warranties. The problem areas delineated in the study are burden of proof, implied warranties, notice of breach, latent defects, duration of warranty, warranty by government, and scope of the warranty clause. Each one of these problem areas is discussed with briefs of applicable cases and conclusion as to their meaning. The final section is a condensation of lessons learned from the cases and suggestions on future warranty use.
