2008 (English)In: MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE NEW FRONTIER / [ed] Mitsuishi, M; Ueda, K; Kimura, F, 2008, 537-542 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
As a product service system provider it is important to consider its benefits and drawbacks. Connecting the product service system with a remanufacturing system has a good potential of being economically and environmentally beneficial. This paper elucidates the case of three different remanufacturers and how their relation with their core provider affects their business. Products sold as a part of a product service system have great potential of being remanufactured in an efficient manner. This is for example due to large possibilities to plan the remanufacturing operations and to achieve pre-information about the cores coming in to the remanufacturing facilities.
