Abstract: The process of remanufacturing is attractive economically and environmentally for both manufacturers and consumers. It is important to properly use reconditioned parts in a production plan based on their availability and production costs. A mathematical model is derived to find the cost-optimal production strategy that incorporates reconditioned components in the manufacturing effort. New and reconditioned parts are used to carry out replacements upon failure under an unlimited free replacement warranty policy. Key production decisions, such as when remanufacturing should commence, how long the warranty period should be, and how many returned parts should be reconditioned are answered. The availability of reconditioned parts and their discounted costs are incorporated in the model. Interactions between these decisions and their impacts on the manufacturing system and the consumer are investigated. A case study on aircraft rotable spare parts will be presented.
