Balancing Technologies for Reverse Supply Chain with Modularity as Strategy for Competitiveness

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearch

Abstract

In this paper we review applications, case studies, models and techniques proposed for the design and optimization of reverse logistics systems according to the principle of modularity. Based on these studies we give an overview of scientific literature that describes and discusses cases of reverse production activities and modularity in practice. We examine high technology industries and their potential competitiveness implementing reversed supply chain. The main research question addressed in the paper is: How can modularity guide and determine the development of complex technology and subsequently contributing to enhancing the efficiency of the reverse supply chain (RSC)?
