Remanufacturers rebuild used or damaged products to be good as new. A remanufactured product must meet the original product's specifications using a combination of reused, repaired, or new replacement parts.  Remanufacturers refer to replaceable parts as cores. They may ship and receive numerous and various cores to and from hundreds of their customers or distributors. The process involves several vital steps, not the least of which is core banking or management.

Core distributors and remanufacturers need to know exactly where cores are and when to expect delivery. Cores are so vital a component in remanufacturing that they might almost be thought of as cash. So, core banking has a lot in common with regular banking and core management with customer account management.

Core Banking

One aspect of core banking involves managing customer accounts. As customers purchase remanufactured products, they return cores that need rebuilding, and sometimes they send extra cores that they do not owe. Accurate records of customers' current eligibility for cores are absolutely essential. The flexibility to "bank" cores when a customer returns cores for which they do not have eligibility is helpful for the customer. And it makes more cores available to the remanufacturer.

Here's an example of banking cores: Suppose a customer orders ten remanufactured units and has five cores already in their account. They would only be charged for five cores because their banked cores would be accounted for in the transaction.

Core banking is often complex. Sometimes a customer will request remanufacturing of their specific core. Or they may request the return of their banked cores. If their cores were already remanufactured and shipped to other customers, the remanufacturer might need to compensate the customer or source cores elsewhere.

Alas, ERP systems won't handle remanufacturing requirements such as core banking. Remanufacturers must rely on error-prone spreadsheets, invest in expensive custom solutions, or outsource core management responsibilities to a third party.
