Part Recovery under Quality and Demand Uncertainty with Environmental Costs

We consider acquisition and stocking decisions, motivated by the operations of a salvaging facility that collects a particular end-of-life product, performs a series of disassembly and recovery operations to reclaim a reusable part and sells the recovered part in the used parts market. We model uncertainties in demand and quality classification of the parts and include environmental fees that create a non-negligible tradeoff against the operational costs in acquisition and stocking decisions.


Supplier Selection For Assembly Components Under Lead Time Uncertainty
Kürekci, Zeynep; Gürel, Sinan; Department of Industrial Engineering (2022-2)
Supplied components constitute a great majority of companies’ total cost and supplier selection is one of the key operations of supply chain management in the competitive world. In this study, our main concern is to start assembly processes of an aircraft company at the planned starting date by receiving components that are required for each process on time. We decide on which components will be ordered from which suppliers under scenario based supplier lead times. The aim is to minimize total cost resultin...
Analyzing the Effects of Inventory Cost Setting Rules in a Disassembly and Recovery Environment
Akcali, Elif; Bayındır, Zeynep Pelin (null; 2005-10-15)
We consider a salvaging facility that satisfies the demand for remanufactured parts that can be recovered from the end-of-life products. One of the difficulties faced in planning for such a system is the determination of the opportunity cost associated with carrying recovered parts inventory. In this study we investigate the effect of different rules to determine this opportunity cost on the performance of the system. The performance of several different rules is assessed by a computational study under a pr...
Design of fixturing system for forging dies
Cavbozar, Özgür; Gökler, Mustafa İlhan; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
In forging industry, the die setup starts with unloading the previous die set and ends with approval of the first part produced. During conventional die setup, forging press is kept idle. The aim of this study is to perform die changing applications of the 1000 ton forging press of Aksan Steel Forging Company in more systematic way to reduce the idle time. The applicability of Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED) System and quick die locating methods have been studied. SMED classifies the setup operations ...
Disassembly and Recovery Planning for a Salvaging Facility
Akcali, Elif; Yildirim, Gonca; Bayındır, Zeynep Pelin (null; 2009-10-24)
Stochastic inventory models are investigated for a salvaging facility that disassembles a type of end-of-life product for recovery. A single-period newsvendor type of setting is considered to capture the basic tradeoffs between unit cost and revenue structures under three different product structure and recovery operation schemes. A numerical study is conducted to analyze the effects of dependencies due to product and recovery operation structures.
Profit oriented disassembly line balancing
Altekin, Fatma Tevhide; Kandiller, Levent; Department of Industrial Engineering (2005)
In this study, we deal with the profit oriented partial disassembly line balancing problem which seeks a feasible assignment of selected disassembly tasks to stations such that the precedence relations among the tasks are satisfied and the profit is maximized. We consider two versions of this problem. In the profit maximization per cycle problem (PC), we maximize the profit for a single disassembly cycle given the task times and costs, part revenues and demands and station costs. We propose a heuristic solu...
