Sustainable Public Procurement of Medical Technology and Green Logistics: A Modularity Approach

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review

Abstrakt

This paper investigates design for remanufacture in terms of both detailed new product design and the environmental performance in which modularization and reversed production may operate. We examine the medical equipment industry and their potential contributions to the implementation of green supply chain in the healthcare sector. An exploratory case study of medical equipment supply chain is presented when considering the life cycle of the product can be managed through the modularization strategies. Preliminary findings indicate that design-for-disassembly of modules make equipment easier to disassemble increasing the chances of reuse of valuable components and a better final disposal of scrap.
