The return flow of remanufacturing processes is highly variable in terms of the quality of returned products. This fact causes higher variability in remanufacturing processing times. In order to decrease the variability in the process the returns can be inspected and classified according to their quality following their arrival. However this classification will add an extra cost to the remanufacturing process. In this study we investigate the pros and cons of such a classification.
