In addition to the consumer goods, capital goods also offer a great potential for ecological and economic optimizations. In view of this fact the Project WiMonDi, started in September 1998, focuses to create a marketable Re-Use of modules and components of assembly systems by using modular design and organizationally closed distribution concepts. The objective of the project WiMonDi is to increase the usability and prolong the life span of assembly systems through the organized rebuilding of assembly facilities as well as the refurbishment and Re-Use of their components1. Therefore, it is necessary to develop organizational and methodical strategies and to initiate new distribution and user models between the supplier and user of assembly facilities to realize a workable Re-Use concept. WiMonDi is being conducted with tight cooperation between Industry and University.
