Samenvatting

Reuse and remanufacturing of product parts and modules has shown to reduce costs, and also leads to substantial reductions in energy use and material losses during the whole product lifecycle. Furthermore it stimulates in its wake new business opportunities regionally. Together with small and medium sized enterprises (SME's) and engineering students we have developed an approach, which is called WARM, to help determine if and how the reuse and remanufacturing of parts, modules and products involved is a good strategy for a specific product and business. The WARM-approach has proved very useful in setting up a more sustainable and profitable business and at the same time forms a framework for education with great appeal for students.The approach covers most of the technical and business issues that have to be addressed when running an enterprise. Consequently for business engineering students the approach offers an opportunity to study all these aspects in practice and for existing enterprises.
This paper clarifies the background and the principles and will explain the different steps of the approach. It also shows the way we are organizing the courses using the approach with the student. The first practical results are being evaluated
(WARM is an acronym for Waste And Recovery Management)
