Remanufacturing is a term coined for the process of taking a previously sold, worn, non-functional product or component and reviving it to turn it into a like-new condition which thereby extends the product lifecycle.
The process of remanufacturing is becoming increasingly popular across many industries ranging from aerospace to food production thanks to the reduction in resources and offering a more sustainable manufacturing solution.
In this four-part online series, you will learn more about the basics of remanufacturing. You will explore the types of products that can be remanufactured and the benefits associated with them, covering everything from a business, customer, societal and environmental perspective.
We will also take you through the entire seven-step remanufacturing process, a practice that is vital to ensure effectiveness and efficiency. And finally, you will learn about design for remanufacturing, also referred to as DFRem, the importance of it, and how to adopt it in your approaches.
