Using a real-life data set, we investigate the benefit of sharing market sales information in a setting where a theoretical model argues there is no benefit from such a collaboration scheme. The set of real Electronic Point Of Sales (EPOS) data and the orders that were placed by a retailer to a suppler was used. We have focused on products that operate(More)
In this paper we study a hybrid system with both manufacturing and remanufacturing. The inventory control strategy we use in the manufacturing loop is an automatic pipeline, inventory and order based production control system (APIOBPCS). In the remanufacturing loop we employ a Kanban policy to represent a typical pull system. The methodology adopted uses(More)
—Traditionally, the uncapacitated facility location problem (UFLP) is solved as a single-objective optimization exercise, and focusses on minimizing the cost of operating a distribution network. This paper presents an exploratory study in which the environmental impact is modelled as a separate objective to the economic cost. We assume that the(More)
