Author: Atasu, Atalay ; Guide, Daniel R. ; Van Wassenhove, Luk N.INSEAD Area: Technology and Operations ManagementIn: Production and Operations Management, vol. 17, no. 5, September/October 2008 Language: EnglishDescription: p. 483-496.Type of document: INSEAD ArticleNote: Please ask us for this itemAbstract: This paper provides a critical review of analytic research on the business economics of product reuse inspired by industrial practice. Insights and critical assumptions are provided for each paper. We further classify the research into four streams: industrial engineering/operations research, design, strategy, and behavioral, and present a framework linking these streams.We find that some modeling assumptions risk being institutionalized, and suggest a renewed exploration of industrial practice.
