Remanufacturing is a process when used product or core is brought to ‘like-new’ condition, might be with an upgrade in performance. This process complies with technical specifications, including engineering, quality, and testing standards. It yields a fully warranted product. The purpose of this study was to conduct initial research on the feasibility of remanufacturing primarily on the mobile phone casings to provide information and consideration for a firm that would do remanufacturing of mobile phones. A series of material characterization on several mobile phone casings manufactured by major international brands revealed that remanufacturing is not a viable route to attempt. The evaluation shows that remanufacturing used casing mobile phone require several stages of repair, which cause an increase in the cost that can, in turn, affect the prices.
