Reverse Supply Chains
Issues and Analysis
"… compiles the research, thoughts and experiences of nearly three dozen supply chain experts from across the globe. Veteran industrial engineering professor and author Surendra M. Gupta edited the compilation. The 15 chapters begin with a discussion of reverse logistics and its issues and challenges, continuing on to deal with designing new products with reverse logistics in mind, advanced remanufacturing applications (including integrated inventory models), modeling supplier selection, removing barriers to "greening" your supply chains, material flow, strategy and dealing with governmental regulation. It includes metrics, case studies, modeling and optimization."

"… addresses a very important issue, reverse supply chain management, which soon is expected become mandatory for various business due to environmental, regulatory and financial considerations. The timing of the book couldn't be more appropriate. … will allow the readers to understand the reverse supply chains better as well as will aid in their decision making processes while trying to decide on the problem solving methodologies they should involve."
—Elif Kongar, University of Bridgeport, Connecticut
"… This is a timely issue which contains a fine and balanced selection of ethodologies and practical results in the field of the pacing "green manufacturing" industries. It is likely to be of use both for academia people and industry practitioners interested in gaining a competitive advance for their organizations."
—F.G. Filip, The Romanian Academy, Bucharest
"This book gives a thorough view of a large number of important issues in Reverse Logistics, with detailed surveys, mathematical models, analyses, case studies, and numerical examples. It is self-contained for any academician or practitioner interested in Reverse Logistics, Environmentally Conscious Production, and Reverse/Closed-loop Supply Chain Management."
—Kishore Kumar Pochampally, Southern New Hampshire University, Manchester
"... the book presents different models for analyzing reverse supply chains, mostly from an industrial engineering perspective. An IE researcher will realize the lack of environmental considerations in the mathematical optimization models, particularly metrics that report on environmental impact of products and processes, and that gap may provide opportunities for collaboration between the two fields."
