Early Warranty Tracking
Introduction
Early Warranty Tracking (EWT) is an extremely beneficial system in identifying vehicle
launch problems and tracking warranty, transportation and safety repair frequencies over
time periods of as little as one day to the past 6 months (based on the maintenance purge
criteria) of activity. The information recorded in EWT is loaded nightly Tuesday through
Saturday with Sunday and Monday data being combined and updated to EWT the next
business day.
The system can generate summarized frequency reports to the 6th or 10th digit of the labor
operation number and can be sorted at many different levels as well as detailed claim
information on individual vehicles based on the user’s parameters.
The system provides earlier access to warranty information than the WIS system.
However it does not provide the same level of statistical reliability since it does not take
into account units produced, product mix time lags between sold and build dates etc. It
does provide raw causal repair frequencies.
With the technological advancements in PC’s and advent of the extranet/intranet, the
latest version of EWT was developed as a web-based application to work in unison and
interact with WIS (Warranty Information System), GCS (Global Claims System) and
QNA (Quality Narrative Analyzer). EWT is available to corporate employees and
suppliers and is accessible with standard browser software, such as, Internet Explore ™
and Netscape ™.

New Features
The following are some of the new items the web-based application has over the previous
mainframe system:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Ability to pass parameters between a frequency report and a claims report.
Access to Canadian, Mexican and International claims as well as US Domestic.
Share parameters with WIS (Warranty Information System) and vice versa.
Greater interoperability with WIS, GCS and QNA.
Similar ‘feel’ and ‘look’ as WIS.
Markets can be combined to generate a “Global” warranty metric.
All Product Teams can be combined to generate a corporate total metric.
Corporate Body Models are available for queries as are the ones used in WIS.
Underlined column headings can be sorted by a click of the mouse.
Component Typing has been changed to represent vehicle populations. This will
allow generating multiple Component Type queries on a specific LOP.
Commodity Director has been added to group supplier responsible warranty based
on the type of components.
Part Numbers associated with LOP activity are available on frequency reports.
Downloading is more stabilized. Data extraction has been improved with a new
“Export” feature. The forma t for exported data is now user-defined and
comparable to WIS.
Advanced Reporting is available allowing for parameters to be saved, shared and
re-used on demand or scheduled for periodic runs.

Logon Procedures
EWT, like WIS, is accessed using either Internet Explorer™ (IE) or Netscape™ through
the following URL:
http://aqip02.appl.chrysler.com/servlet/com.dcx.quality.aqip.qir.WisServlet
Though Netscape™ will work, it is recommended that Internet Explorer™ be used with
web-based corporate applications as it is the corporate standard. Make sure that the IE
software is at least version 5.5 or higher. If not, your DIA can easily update the PC’s IE
version through the LANDS Software Distribution web-site: http://lands.is.chrysler.com/
Upon accessing the WIS URL, users will be prompted to input their mainframe T-ID and
password into the sign-on window and click on the “ACCEPT” button:

EWT data can be downloaded into a Comma Separated Value (*.csv) format file using
the “Export” command on the EWT Title Bar. Once a report is displayed such as the
EWT Claims Report below, clicking on the “Export” command will begin the download
process.
Internet Explorer will open the following window. Selecting “Open this file from its
current location”, will automatically open the text file with an application defined by the
user and append a *.csv file extension.
Selecting “Save this file to disk” initially will simply save the data as a *.html file to the
user defined folder location and make the file contents useless.
Note: Due to an IE bug, you may be prompted up to three times with the above window
when attempting to open the file. Also, if opting to save the data to a file, select “Open
this file from its current location” the first time the above window appears. The second
time the window appears, IE will properly save the data.
