Abstract

Recovering end-of-life products is emerging as a key challenge for manufacturers, as awareness of sustainability grows and environmental regulations become more stringent. End-of-life recovery is a large-scale problem involving multiple types of end-of-life products that may share common parts amongst them. Environmental regulations and market demands add more difficulty to the problem. Manufacturers need to meet a specified recovery rate for their products while fulfilling orders for remanufactured products. To assists in more effective management of end-of-life products, this paper introduces an Analytical Target Cascading (ATC) formulation for end-of-life recovery management. The model identifies an optimal recovery strategy for a family of products, whereby the manufacturer can achieve recovery targets more efficiently and cost-effectively. A case study of an alternator family is presented as an illustration.
