Design for Remanufacturing and Remanufacturability Based on Process


Article Preview

Design for remanufacturing is an important content of remanufacturing engineering, and the remanufacturability of product is mainly determined in the stage of product design. Through developing study of product design for remanufacturing, it can promote the remanufacturability, and markedly enhance the efficiency of remanufacturing production. This paper give some relative concepts about product design for remanufacturing and remanufacturability based on total remanufacturing process, such as remanufacturability, and bring forward the remanufacturability research contents and qualitative design principals in the product design stage.
