At present, in the fierce market competition, in addition to having excellent performance, reasonable price, and excellent quality, after-sale warranty service plays an increasingly important role in product marketing. During the warranty period, good after-sale service has become an important factor in competition among manufacturers. According to the deadline of warranty service, the warranty service can be divided into one-dimensional warranty, two-dimensional warranty, and multi-dimensional warranty strategy [1]. At present, the two-dimensional warranty strategy has been widely used in many military and civil equipment maintenance services. Two-dimensional warranty covers a rectangular two-dimensional warranty area. Usually, the horizontal axis is used to indicate the use time and the vertical axis is used to indicate the use degree. The warranty service ends regardless of the time or degree of use arrived first. As shown in Figure 1, many military and civilian general vehicles are guaranteed by using time and driving mileage.
