Paper Abstract

In hybrid production systems when both remanufacturing and new product manufacturing activities are performed at the same facility used parts can be remanufactured at the same shop floor as the new products. Here the quality difference between used and new parts being processed impacts both the output quality and the efficiency of shared machines by causing quicker than normal wear of tools. In this study, in order to capture this impact we first look at a one machine system that manufactures both classes of products with distinct process related failure rates, then a two machine one buffer tandem system with infinite buffer capacity and suggest a method to approximately compute the throughput rate of this system.
