Tools for Remanufacturing
What is it?
The Remanufacturing Competency checklist is a business self assessment tool developed jointly by the High Speed
Sustainable Manufacturing Institute (HSSMI) and The Scottish Institute for Remanufacture (SIR). It allows a business, which is considering adopting remanufacturing, to assess its capability to remanufacture in relation to 10 critical factors.
These factors have been developed by consolidating HSSMI’s remanufacturing research with its industrial and academic projects, bringing it all together in a simple, intuitive, format.
Why have we created it?
The decision on whether to start remanufacturing is a strategic one that requires systemic thinking. HSSMI and SIR have recognised that there is a fundamental lack of tools and information available to support manufacturers in making this decision. The Remanufacturing Competency checklist has been created to fill that gap.
How do you use it?
There are three simple steps to assessing your remanufacturing readiness:
1. Complete the checklist (online version coming soon) to get an initial snapshot of your current readiness.
2. Contact us. We can then facilitate a more detailed review through a workshop, developing a spider diagram of your readinessand identifying areas of strengths and weaknesses
3. We will then support you in developing an action plan to tackle your shortcomings and exploit opportunities to enable successful integration of remanufacturing into your business strategy
