In another system that I worked in several years ago we had the ability to track the warranty on spare parts. When we setup the spare part in the system, it asked if it warrantable. If you selected yes, then you were required to enter the warranty period in days. Once you issued the spare to the machine, the CMMS system started tracking the time once it was issued. If you were to change that spare within the warranty period on a work order, the system would flag that WO and part for a potential warranty. Our first year we had projected a warranty savings of $500K, our actual savings exceeded $1.5M.
