Supply Chain Management


Imagine a world
where:


your
customers are your
suppliers



your forecast is highly instable



raw
material and its packaging are of questionable
quality



product
disposition and routings are
unclear



the
nature and visibility of costs and pricing are different and
variable


inventory
management is intentionally inconsistent and product life
-
cycle
management

is
exponentially
complex


used products
are returned to you, not because they are broken or the
wrong part, but because
they are now a raw
m
aterial
into your operation /
supply
chain


If (forward)
Logistics
is that part of the supply chain process that plans, implements, and
controls the efficient, effective flow and storage of goods, services, and related
information from the point
-
of
-
origin to the point
-
of
-
consumption in order to meet
customers’ requirements (CLM, 1999), then
Reverse Logistics
is the movement of
products, materials and information in the opposite direction for the purpose of
creating or recapturing value, or for proper disposal (Rogers and
Tibben
-
Lembke
,
1999, 2001).


This
is the world of Re
-
manufacturing, Reverse Logistics, and Closed Loop Supply Chains
.
