Abstract: 

This case study paper presents system costs and effect on costs due to variation in
manufacturing performance in recycling of manufacturing generated waste. One case
concern metal, manufacturing waste and the other plastic assembly process waste. There
exist potentials for improvements in logistics and operation planning which could be
aided by sharing production performance information. There are also potentials to
increase value of the recycling material.
