The complexity within products, services and industrial production is constantly increasing. Due to the trend of mass production towards lot size `one', topics like rationalization, optimization or Lean Management were followed by almost all companies during the last decades. Especially the industrial segment of remanufacturing is affected by this trend, which issues in small lot sizes and low volumes. Different strategies and approaches of Industry 4.0 were developed during the last years for the manufacturing but not for the remanufacturing industry. For this reason, the aim of this paper is to identify challenges of the remanufacturing industry and furthermore approaches of Industry 4.0 to face these challenges.
