Gupta gives Keynote Speech and Serves on a Panel of Experts at IWAR2021
MIE Professor Surendra M. Gupta delivered a keynote speech and served on a panel of experts during October 16-17, 2021 at the 5th International Workshop on Autonomous Remanufacturing (IWAR2021) organized by Beihang University in Beijing, China. Remanufacturing is an important element of reverse supply chains. The increase in the popularity and implementation of remanufacturing have created many challenges due to uncertainties in the quality and quantities of returned products, difficulties in estimating the remaining lives of the components, unknown timings of the availability of end-of-life (EOL) products, balancing the remanufacturing line, pricing decisions, warranty cost estimation and opportunity for committing fraud by third party and customers, to name a few. Prof. Gupta’s talk captured the state of the art and provided an overview of various modeling techniques used by researchers to address the above-mentioned challenges as well as opportunities and future trends.
