Analysing the Adoption of Lean Production in Remanufacturing Industry by Mind Map: Analysing the Adoption of Lean Production in Remanufacturing Industry

1. Remanufacturing is a process in which used products, referred to as “cores”, are reprocessed into like-new products.

2. During the remanufacturing process, cores undergo a series of processes including inspection, disassembly, testing, reassembly, and a final check to ensure that the final products meet the remanufactured product specifications.

3. Transferring lean manufacturing, which was developed in automotive industry, to remanufacturing industry could be complex process due to stickiness issues.

4. Transferring lean manufacturing, which was developed in automotive industry, to remanufacturing industry could be complex process due to stickiness issues. Danese, Romano and Boscari (2017) examined how stickiness issues hinder lean implementation. Stickiness was defined as the extent to which companies stick to current manufacturing process and high resistance to change

5. Organisations in certain types of industry experience difficulties adopting lean and consequently they adopt some relevant lean methods, and only in specific situations to improve their operations.

6. The findings of this study offer a number of managerial insights. Managers of remanufacturing companies intending to adopt lean manufacturing should aim for a balance between long-term and short-term orientation.

7. Long-term orientation is needed because lean requires a long-term perspective; however, its implementation should not be viewed as a race to the finish line, but rather as a journey.
