Collection and remanufacturing of used products can be considered as one of the options to improve the sustainability of a manufacturing system. In this study, we focus on production and sustainability level decisions in pure manufacturing and hybrid manufacturing–remanufacturing systems and compare the systemwide performances and the performances of supply chain actors under different settings in terms of economic and environmental performance measures. We consider four settings as follows. In the first setting, no remanufacturing is made and only the manufactured products are sold via the retailer, whereas in the second, the third and the fourth settings, used products are collected and remanufactured by the manufacturer, the retailer and a third-party remanufacturer, respectively. Under all settings, we put the emissions resulting from the manufacturing and remanufacturing processes into account and consider one of the well-known emission policies, the carbon tax policy. We propose stylized models for the centralized and decentralized cases of each setting and analyze the decisions obtained under optimal or equilibrium solution. Based on our analysis, we observe that since the upper bound on the remanufacturing quantity depends on the manufacturing quantity, the manufacturer uses manufacturing quantity as a strategic power to compete with the retailer or the third-party remanufacturer. Moreover, in the same condition, the manufacturer always remanufactures less products compared to retailer or third-party remanufacturer since he considers the negative effect of remanufactured products on manufactured products.

A new fuzzy multi-criteria framework for measuring sustainability performance of a supply chain
Erol, Ismail; Sencer, Safiye; Sarı, Ramazan (2011-04-15)
Sustainable supply chain performance measurement is aimed at addressing environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainable supply chain management. It can be argued that it is not easy to reduce all dimensions of sustainable supply chain to a single unit. Then, the issue is that all valuations should somehow be reducible to a single one-dimensional standard. Multi-criteria evaluation introduces a framework to remedy this issue. As a consequence, multi-criteria evaluation seems to supply a proper and ...

This study develops a model of a closed-loop supply chain (CLSC) network which starts with the suppliers and recycles with the decomposition centers. As a traditional network design, we consider minimizing the all transportation costs and the raw material purchasing costs. To pay attention for the green impacts, different transportation choices are presented between echelons according to their CO2 emissions. The plants can purchase different raw materials in respect of their recyclable ratios. The focuses o...
A robust optimization model for sustainable and resilient closed-loop supply chain network design considering conditional value at risk

One of the challenges facing supply chain designers is designing a sustainable and resilient supply chain network. The present study considers a closed-loop supply chain by taking into account sustainability, resilience, robustness, and risk aversion for the first time. The study suggests a two-stage mixed-integer linear programming model for the problem. Further, the robust counterpart model is used to handle uncertainties. Furthermore, conditional value at risk criterion in the model is considered in orde...
Optimal pricing and production decisions in utilizing reusable containers
Atamer, Busra; Bakal, İsmail Serdar; Bayındır, Zeynep Pelin (2013-06-01)
In this study, we focus on pricing and production decisions in utilizing reusable containers with stochastic customer demand. We consider a manufacturer that sells a single product to the customers in reusable containers with two supply options: (i) brand-new containers and (ii) returned containers from customers. The return quantity depends on both customer demand and the acquisition fee determined by the manufacturer. The unit cost of production using brand-new containers is different than the unit cost o...
Joint quantity flexibility for multiple products in a decentralized supply chain
Karakaya, Selcuk; Bakal, İsmail Serdar (2013-02-01)
In this study, we analyze a decentralized supply chain with a single retailer and a single manufacturer where the retailer sells multiple products in a single period. The products differ in terms of a limited number of features only. The retailer places initial orders based on preliminary demand forecasts at the beginning of the period and has an opportunity to modify its initial order after receiving perfect demand information. However, the final orders of the retailer are constrained by its initial orders...
