We jointly analyze forecasting and capacity management of returned products to evaluate the benefit of information obtained from early returns. Using this information, the return time distribution parameters are estimated with confidence intervals by maximum likelihood with censored data. We formulate a single-period model for capacity planning to determine the optimal level of remanufacturing capacity. Through numerical simulation, we study the combined effects of revenue discounting and… CONTINUE READING
