The increased number of mobile phone users has an impact on increasing electronic waste (E-Waste) without being offset by the act of product recovery management. Remanufacturing is one way to overcome this. Remanufacturing is a process to return used products to general aesthetics and operating standards.This paper aims to design a mobile phone remanufacturing process in Indonesia. Indonesia is a developing country where mobile usage is quite high. The mobile phones are chosen because it is one of the biggest e-waste takers of late. Several factories were visited in this study. This research uses a qualitative survey, which is carried out in mobile phone factories and service centers. From this research, a design has been made to remanufacture the process on mobile phones. The manufacturing plant verifies the design to obtain the input of the real constraints which will happen when the remanufacturing process is done. The steps in the process of remanufacturing are human machine interface & visual inspection, separation, disassembly, cleaning, inspection, sorting, reconditioning, reassembly, and final inspection.
Key words: E-waste / hazard and toxic waste / high-end mobile phone / product recovery
