Paper Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the variation in the reusable rate of cores (used products) on the performance of the remanufacturing system. The remanufacturing system considered here consists of three modules; viz., the disassembly and testing module for returned products, the disposition module for non-reusable returns, and the remanufacturing module. Each server in the system is subject to breakdown and has a fmite buffer capacity. Repair times, breakdown times and service times follow exponential distributions. We model the remanufacturing system as an open queueing network and use the decomposition principle and expansion methodology to analyze it
