Analyzing the Effects of Inventory Cost Setting Rules in a Disassembly and Recovery Environment

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 proposed approximate inventory control policy.

Analyzing the effects of inventory cost setting rules in a disassembly and recovery environment
Akcali, Elif; Bayındır, Zeynep Pelin (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
In this study we consider a disassembly and recovery facility receiving end-of-life products and facing demand for a specific part that is disassembled from the product and then recovered. The disassembly and recovery operations can be either performed before hand, or upon customer arrival. In the latter case, a discount on the selling price is applied to compensate the customer for waiting for the completion of the disassembly and recovery operations. One of the dificulties faced in planning for such a sys...
Assessing the benefits of remanufacturing option under one-way substitution and capacity constraint
Bayındır, Zeynep Pelin; Gullu, Refik (Elsevier BV, 2007-02-01)
In this article, we investigate the profitability of remanufacturing option when the manufactured and remanufactured products are segmented to different markets and the production capacity is finite. A single period profit model under substitution is constructed to investigate the system conditions under which remanufacturing is profitable. We present analytical findings and computational results to show profitability of remanufacturing option under substitution policy subject to a capacity constraint of th...
Analysis of axisymmetric cup drawing in relation to friction
Darendeliler, Haluk (1996-03-15)
The application of computer-aided simulation to manufacturing by using sheet-metal forming processes in industry, leads to the elimination of the repetitive production of expensive dies, and the loss of time, labor and material. The finite-element method has been widely used in the anlaysis of sheet-metal forming processes, in this way making it possible to determine the deformed shape and the variation in the thickness of the material. Hence, the drawability and the shape of the blank can be determined in ...
A Comparison of Inventory Control Policies for a Joint Manufacturing / Remanufacturing Environment with Remanufacturing Yield Loss
Bayındır, Zeynep Pelin; Dekker, Rommert (null; 2004-08-24)
We consider a joint manufacturing / remanufacturing environment with remanufacturing yield loss. Demand and return follow independent stationary Poisson processes. Returns can be disposed off upon arrival to the system. Manufacturing and remanufacturing operations performed in the same facility at exponential rates. Yield information becomes available after remanufacturing. Demands that are not directly satisfied are lost. We investigate what inventories to consider when making production and disposal decisio...
Uncertainty assessment for the supply chain system of a concrete company using Monte Carlo Simulation.
Serbest, İnanç Taha; Gölbaşı, Onur; Department of Mining Engineering (2021-2)
Concrete is the primary construction material and may be supplied in varying strength values according to customer demand. The profitability of concrete operations is very low, with a profit margin changing between 0.1 and 0.2 percent (OYAK Concrete Company, 2019). Since multiple competitors are generally available for the sales region, it is not always likely to raise up the concrete prices. Therefore, operation profitability for concrete production and distribution systems may be achieved practically by m...
