AbstraktCurrent business models base their activities on the manufacturing, distribution and
selling of industrial products with a single use phase. But now, products with multiple
use phases have to be considered regarding new economic and environmental pressures.
Therefore, the related complex life cycles of (re)manufactured products have to be
modelled and assessed by design teams for a better understanding of their overall
performance. This paper focuses on the remanufacturing strategy. The study shows how
to establish environmental assessments for remanufactured products life cycles and how
to compare them to environmental assessments for “classical” life cycles. The final
objective is to provide easy-to-use methods and tools for designers to allow them to
quantify the environmental benefits related to the use of a closed loop strategy. The
approach is illustrated by a case study from the industry: the truck injector.
