The results indicated that main reason of the printer damage was from maintenance and their age as the current receipt printers have been used for a long time. Some of the printers used in distribution center aged around 4 years which was considered long life time for such electronic equipment. However, the depreciation of the receipt printers was at 5 years and if the maintenance costed less than depreciation price, new printers could not be bought.
