Selection Of Products And Prices In Manufacturing And Remanufacturing Environment, Sasidhar Malladi, K. Jo Min Jan 2005

Selection Of Products And Prices In Manufacturing And Remanufacturing Environment, Sasidhar Malladi, K. Jo Min

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

In this paper, we consider a manufacturer who produces both new and remanufactured products facing a group of heterogeneous customers who self-select their optimal choices of products. Under such circumstances, we formulate a mathematical programming model that determines the products, prices, and acquisition prices for used products. Based on this model, we will discuss conditions under which remanufacturing can be encouraged.


Coordinating Forward And Reverse Flows Of Products For A Manufacturer-Retailer Supply Chain Model, Jie Li, K. Jo Min Jan 2005

Coordinating Forward And Reverse Flows Of Products For A Manufacturer-Retailer Supply Chain Model, Jie Li, K. Jo Min

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

In this paper, we formulate and analyze a manufacturer-retailer supply chain model with product remanufacturing. This model takes into account both forward flow of the new product as well as reverse flow of the used product. Specifically, we assume that the manufacturer can control the wholesale price of the new product as well the transfer price of the used product from the retailer while the retailer can control the retail price of the new product and the collecting price of the used product. Under this assumption, we compare and contrast the coordinated scenario vs. the uncoordinated scenario. Managerial insights and ...
