The software platform will be supported by other key outcomes:
ResCoM will develop a framework based on methodologies and circular design tools that take into account the complex, dynamic interaction between product design, supply chain management (integrated supply chains), business model development (closed-loop business models) and remanufacturing processes.
ResCoM industrial pilots
In four reuse and remanufacturing case studies, the pilot companies will be using the ResCoM software platform and framework to implement closed-loop product systems in their industries.
ResCoM best practices
The lessons learned from the four pilots will be used to develop generic guidelines for implementing ResCoM ideas, using the ResCoM software platform for companies in various industries.
ResCoM community and dissemination
The project will create a ResCoM community of manufacturers, design firms, reverse logistics suppliers and third-party remanufacturers who are interested in the project. The research partners will also submit scientific articles about the project which will be openly accessible to disseminate the project in the scientific community.
