Cost and value drivers in circular material flow logistics
Paper in proceedings, 2018




 This case study paper presents system costs and effect on costs due to variation in manufacturing performance in recycling of manufacturing generated waste. One case concern metal, manufacturing waste and the other plastic assembly process waste. There exist potentials for improvements in logistics and operation planning which could be aided by sharing production performance information. There are also potentials to increase value of the recycling material.
