    "How do I apply lean methods in my remanufacturing organization?" is a question many executives and managers ask themselves. Since the literature on using lean tools in production environments is usually focused on original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), its application in commercial remanufacturing is often unreported. This chapter fills a gap in the literature with a brief overview of how remanufacturers can translate manufacturing-oriented lean tools and principles into their processes. The authors also discuss the challenges and opportunities that are peculiar to lean remanufacturing operations.
