原始语种摘要: Purpose(#br) – This paper seeks to present a decision-making model for manufacturers to maximize their profits in reverse logistics operations. (#br)Design/methodology/approach(#br) – A system dynamic model has been developed to complement with prior models and is validated using data collected from a computer company manufacturer handling returns with volumes transacted over a period of two years. (#br)Findings(#br) – The results from the model indicate that part replacements from suppliers are more profitable than refurbished computer parts. In addition, transportation delay and supplier delay in processing returns have a significant impact on the viability of reverse logistics regardless of return volumes. (#br)Research limitations/implications(#br) – The current model is not designed...
