Effects of random yield in remanufacturing with price-sensitive supply and demand

Bakal, İsmail Serdar
Akcali, Elif
In this study, we investigate the effects of recovery yield rate on pricing decisions in reverse supply chains. Motivated by the automotive parts remanufacturing industry, we consider an end-of-life product from which a particular part can be recovered and remanufactured for reuse, and the remainder of the product can be recycled for material recovery. Both the supply of end-of-life products and demand for remanufactured parts are price-sensitive. Yield of the recovery process is random and depends on the acquisition price offered for the end-of-life products. In this setting, we develop models to determine the optimal acquisition price for the end-of-life products and the selling price for remanufactured parts. We also analyze the effects of yield variation to the profitability of remanufacturing, benefits of delaying pricing decisions until after yield realization, and value of perfect yield rate information.


Determination of recovery effort for a probabilistic recovery system under various inventory control policies
Bayındır, Zeynep Pelin; Porras, E (Elsevier BV, 2006-12-01)
In this study we investigate the desired level of recovery under various inventory control policies when the success of recovery is probabilistic. All the used and returned items go into a recovery process that is modelled as a single stage operation. The recovery effort is represented by the expected time spent for it. The effect of increasing recovery effort on the success probability together with unit cost of the operation is included by assuming general forms of dependencies. Alternative to recovered i...

This experimental study examines and compares individual valuations of the two risk reduction mechanisms: self-insurance and self-protection in risky versus ambiguous outcome situations. Results confirm that individuals do not perceive these mechanisms differently under risk. Moreover, ambiguity in the outcome (i.e., size of loss) affects valuations weakly, and changing representations of ambiguity do not alter valuation. In general, individuals are found to be ambiguity averse for low sizes of loss and amb...
Impact of personality traits and risk attitude on individual response: an experimental evidence
Dinç, Özge; Özdemir Yılmaz, Özlem; Başbuğ Erkan, Berna Burçak; Department of Business Administration (2012)
The present study aims to contribute to insurance sector by investigating the risk reduction mechanisms: self-insurance, self-protection, and market insurance. First, individual valuations/demands for these mechanisms in fire and earthquake events are analyzed through conducting an experiment to 78 students from Middle East Technical University In addition, the effects of risk attitude, personality traits, and demographic variables (that are measured through using a questionnaire) on valuations to these pre...
Preferences for Earthquake Risk-Mitigation Mechanisms: Experimental Evidence
CAVLAK, ÖZGE DİNÇ; Özdemir, Özlem; Başbuğ Erkan, Berna Burçak (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2018-08-01)
This study investigates two risk-reduction mechanisms: self-insurance and market insurance. Specifically, it examines individuals' preferences and valuations for these mechanisms to mitigate the earthquake risk in Turkey. An experiment designed to test the expected utility theory and previous theoretical frameworks was conducted with 78 subjects. The results indicate that self-insurance (retrofitting the house) and market insurance (earthquake insurance) are found to be substitutes. Furthermore, self-insura...
The Asymmetric Impact of Funding Liquidity Risk on the Volatility of Stock Portfolios during the COVID-19 Crisis
Kocaarslan, Barış; Soytas, Ugur (2021-02-01)
In this study, we identify economic transmission channels through which changes in funding liquidity conditions in interbank markets asymmetrically affect volatilities of stock portfolios during the COVID-19 crisis. For the purpose of this study, the quantile regression approach is utilized. Controlling for macroeconomic factors, we document that volatilities of high-risk portfolios increase more in response to a deterioration in funding liquidity conditions compared to less risky portfolios. More important...
