  • The study was carried out on a complete sample of 295 warranty repairs of X and Y brand vehicles
  • The study reproduced the actual process of diagnosis and repair of the brake system
  • An analysis of the operation process was carried out using the process mining method
  • The identified factors that differentiate the course of brake disc wear and failure were vehicle type, body type, vehicle make, and vehicle model.
  • Groups of factors that differentiate the vehicles reported for brake system failure and wear were identified.
The paper focuses on issues related to selected automotive brakes with the aim of applying the proposed methodology to other structural systems of this type. The main aim of the paper is to identify the factors that differentiate the course of wear and occurrence of a fault in brake system components of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles during the warranty service period. The following methods were used in this study: systematic literature review, process analysis, and descriptive and inferential statistics, including analysis of variance and multiple classification analysis. As a result of an analysis of 295 brake system repairs, six differentiating factors that allowed for ex post analysis of the repairs were identified. An analysis of the interaction of these factors made it possible to distinguish three groups of motor vehicles depending on the cause of failure of the braking system. Based on the data generated in the warranty process, it is possible to determine the factors that differentiate the occurrence of a fault and the course of brake disc and pad wear.
