Abstract [en]

Remanufacturing has gained attention from the manufacturing industry, but still lacks scientific insights in the literature for remanufacturers’ success. The paper proposes a set of key factors that are important for successful remanufacturing. To do so, it first analyses remanufacturing practices in industry through the authors’ own interviews with practitioners, and derives key factors for successful remanufacturing. They are: 1) product and component value; 2) customer-oriented operation; 3) collection of cores; 4) correct information; and 5) personnel competence. The first two factors show Product/Service System theory is highly relevant to remanufacturing. Then, having those factors in mind, it analyses remanufacturing processes theoretically. The distinctive nature of remanufacturing underlying in the processes is found to have high variability, high uncertainty and, thus, high complexity. The obtained insights are eventually represented with a Fishbone diagram. The value of the paper lies in its insights, grounded in both practice and scientific theory.
