Varying Lifecycle Lengths Within a Product Take-Back Portfolio

  title={Varying Lifecycle Lengths Within a Product Take-Back Portfolio},
  author={Yuan Zhao and Vijitashwa Pandey},
Product take-back and reuse is sometimes at odds with the rapidly evolving desires of some customers. For other customers, the environmental benefits of reuse more than compensate for minor drawbacks. “Selling a service” (rather than a product) through leasing enables the manufacturer to control the timing and quality of product take-back but current methods assume a fixed leasing period. What is needed is a method for fine tuning the time span of customers’ life cycles in order to provide each… CONTINUE READING
