Product Recovery Planning for Remanufacturing Under Uncertainty
MetadataShow full item record
Product recovery and remanufacturing often requires refitting an existing forward distribution network with additional capabilities to provide such reverse logistics functions as collection, disassembly, remanufacturing, and disposal. The resulting network structure forms a link between two markets, namely a “supply market” from which used products are collected and a “demand market” in which remanufactured products are sold. Both markets coincide to form closed-loop flows of used and remanufactured products thus giving rise to the coordination issue of mismatch between supply and demand in terms of timing and quantity. This paper proposes a stochastic mixed integer programming model that takes into consideration the supply and demand uncertainties in a multi-period planning horizon and simultaneously solves for the location and capacity of the disassembly and remanufacturing facilities, the production, shipment and stocking of the optimal quantities of remanufactured products and cores.
