Material and Process Complexity: Implications for Remanufacturing
2005 (English)In: Proceedings of EcoDesign-05, 4th International Symposium on Environmentally Conscious Design and Inverse Manufacturing, Tokyo, Japan, 12-14 December, 2005, 154-161 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
Remanufacturing is a complex business. Many different factors and decisions affect the performance of a remanufacturing process. In this paper, four different remanufacturing cases are analyzed in how they manage these complexities. Based on the generic remanufacturing process, remanufacturing can be divided into the five phases of pre-disassembly, disassembly, reprocessing, reassembly and post-assembly. In each of these phases, a discussion is made regarding the specific factors and decisions that influence the order and purpose of the individual operations.
