We present a near optimal buffer allocation plan (NOBAP) specifically developed for a remanufacturing cell with finite buffers and unreliable servers. A remanufacturing cell is a self-reliant entity within which a variety of activities such as disassembly, inspection, material processing, remanufacturing, assembly and transportation are performed. The remanufacturing cell considered in this paper consists of three modules, viz. the disassembly and testing module for returned products, the… CONTINUE READING
