Lean is an operations improvement approach that helps companies to gain competitive advantage in many areas of implementation. Remanufacturing is a resource recovering strategy that brings the used products to continual life avoiding from investments in and use of new resources. Combining lean and remanufacturing helps to remanufacture faster, cheaper while delivering greater value to the customers.
Through a close collaboration with vehicle, machine, trucks, and IT remanufacturers we at the Linköping University are developing a lean remanufacturing approach. This approach will address the remanufacturing challenges such as long lead time, insufficient inventory level and unstandardized quality.
By applying minimum time for material and information flows analysis or MiniMifa, originating from Value stream mapping (VSM) method we help to remanufacture faster, cheaper while delivering greater value to the customers.
I have an experience in lean manufacturing or Toyota Production System (TPS) and a knowledge of a closed-loop production system where remanufacturing is treated as one of the best resource recovering strategies.
