Abstract [en]

The remanufacturing industry as a whole, and the automotive sector in particular, have over the years proven to be beneficial to the environment and economically lucrative to the companies involved as well as to their customers. However, the different processes within remanufacturing are associated with complicating characteristics, not least to mention the process of core acquisition, which is not present in traditional manufacturing.

This paper presents a qualitative study based on interviews from six SMEs regarding challenges linked to the reverse logistics of SMEs remanufacturing and trading automotive components, acting as a first attempt to identify the specific challenges concerning the collection phase of automotive mechatronics and electronics remanufacturing. Challenges previously identified by researchers are confirmed, additional challenges within the collection phase are recognized and challenges expected to arise when remanufacturing and trading automotive CAN bus components are identified and discussed. The major concern for the involved companies when auspicating future challenges is the handling, transportation and storing of cores. Even though the cores today mainly consist of mechanical components, these challenges are still present; they are expected, however, to become even more crucial when cores contain electronic components.
