Take the Remanufacturing Competency Quiz

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.

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 Remanufacturing (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.

How do you use it?

There are three simple steps to assessing your remanufacturing readiness:

1. Complete the online checklist to get an initial snapshot of your current readiness. A copy of the results will be emailed to you.

2. Let us know you want to explore your results further by completing the contact form. We can then facilitate a more detailed review, identifying specific areas of strength and weakness.

3. We will then support you in developing an action plan to enable successful integration of remanufacturing into your business strategy.
