Closed-Loop Supply Chain (CLSC) management has attained appreciable attention over the last few years. CLSC management allows companies to manage their recovery and recycling activities of end products. Due to the latest developments in the world, producers are responsible for the collection, refurbishing, repairing and disassembly of end products at the end of their lives. This paper develops a mixed-integer CLSC model that is inspired by the automotive industry. In this model, we consider three Decision Makers (DM): Plant, Dismantler Center and Customer. Each DM has individual objectives and is responsible for only its own objective function under same constraints. In order to tackle the trade-offs among the objectives, we used four different Interac-tive Fuzzy Programming (IFP) approaches. The applications of the model and solution techniques are investigated in conjectural data. The paper ends with a conclusion and a call for future studies.

A Novel Interactive Fuzzy Programming Approach for Optimization of Allied Closed-Loop Supply Chains
Calik, Ahmet; YAPICI PEHLİVAN, NİMET; PAKSOY, TURAN; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (2018-01-01)
In recent years, the relationship between companies and suppliers has changed with the continuous rise in environmental awareness and customer expectations. In order to fulfill customers' needs, the actors in a Supply Chain (SC) network sometimes compete and sometimes cooperate with each other. In SC management, both competitive and collaborative strategies have become important and have required different points of view. In a collaborative environment, companies should strive for common targets with mutual...
Order timing strategies in a single-supplier, multi-retailer system
Bakal, İsmail Serdar (2010-01-01)
The timing of retailer order placement is an important factor in supply chain performance in systems with uncertain end-customer demands. Retailers often prefer short order lead times, which permits the resolution of demand uncertainty prior to order placement, and reduces the risks associated with excess inventory. Suppliers, in contrast, prefer long lead times, in order to match supply output with retailer demand. These conflicting preferences create tension between a supplier and retailers regarding orde...
Comparison of lead time quotation policies in e-commerce environment
Altuntaş, Ecem; Duran, Serhan; Department of Industrial Engineering (2019)
This research is based on problems faced by e-commerce firms while determining lead time for their customers. It is hard to obtain an optimal policy for the tradeoff between serving on-time and quoting short lead times. On-time customer services are positively correlated with rating scores of firms in e-commerce websites. Therefore, in this study, the fluctuation of on-time customer service proportion is used as the main determinant of the rating of the firms and different policies of lead time quotation ar...
Delta Analysis: A Hybrid Quantitative Approach for Measuring Discrepancies between Business Process Models
Esgin, Eren; Karagöz, Pınar (2011-05-25)
Business process management (BPM) continues to play a significant role in today's highly globalized world. In order to detect and prevent the gap between reference process model and the actual operation, process mining techniques discover operational model on the basis of the process logs. An important issue at BPM is to measure the similarity between the reference process model and discovered process model so that it can be possible to pinpoint where process participants deviate from the intended process d...
Optimization of Supply Chain Systems with Price Elasticity of Demand
Kaplan, Ugur; TÜRKAY, METİN; Karasözen, Bülent; Biegler, Lorenz T. (2011-09-01)
A centralized multiechelon, multiproduct supply chain network is presented in a multiperiod setting with products that show varying demand against price. An important consideration in such complex supply chains is to maintain system performance at high levels for varying demands that may be sensitive to product price. To examine the price-centric behavior of the customers, the concept of price elasticity of demand is addressed. The proposed approach includes many realistic features of typical supply chain s...
