Remanufacturing represents a higher form of reuse by focusing on value-added recovery, rather than materials recovery Ž . i.e., recycling . Remanufacturing systems are widespread in the United States and are profitable. However, the management of production planning and control activities can differ greatly from management activities in traditional(More)
False failure returns are products that are returned by consumers to retailers with no functional or cosmetic defect. The cost of a false failure return includes the processing actions of testing, refurbishing if necessary, repackaging, the loss in value during the time the product spends in the reverse supply chain (a time that can exceed several months(More)
Manufacturers and their distributors must cope with an increased flow of returned products from their customers. The value of commercial product returns, which we define as products returned for any reason within 90 days of sale, now exceeds US $100 billion annually in the US. Although the reverse supply chain of returned products represents a sizeable flow(More)

Contingency planning is the first stage in developing a formal set of production planning and control activities for the reuse of products obtained via return flows in a closed-loop supply chain. The paper takes a contingency approach to explore the factors that impact production planning and control for closed-loop supply chains that incorporate product(More)
The potential for the cannibalization of new product sales by remanufactured versions of the same product is a central issue in the continuing development of closed-loop supply chains. We investigate the cannibalization question via auctions of new and remanufactured consumer and commercial goods. These auctions allow us to explore the impact of offering(More)
In this paper, we propose a stylized model of a basic remanufacturing shop that handles two remanufacturable products. Product A is comprised of two components A1 and A2, whereas product B is a single entity. After disassembly, component A1 is remanufactured at facility F1; component A2 and product B are remanufactured at facility F2. Both remanufacturing(More)
