Due to individual requirements of economic actors, remanufacturing companies face the challenge of an increasing variety as well as the associated complexity. Therefore, a successful complexity management, created upon detailed knowledge of drivers and effects, is necessary. To close the lack of knowledge, the main complexity drivers and effects within the production organisation of remanufacturing companies are identified. Furthermore, common optimisation methods to manage this drivers and effects are assessed and the best ranked methods are shown within this paper. For the complexity effects, which occur the most and with a low number of available optimisation methods, new methods are presented.
