The design and planning of efficient supply chains (SC) is a major challenge that increases when the return of products has to be accounted for, the so-called closed-loop supply chains (CLSC). In the present work the effect of disruptions and modifications in the operating conditions of CLSCs are investigated on the basis of a 2-stage scenario based model previously developed by the authors. Metrics derived from graph theory are used, along with more conventional economic and operational indices. A discussion on the results obtained is presented to assess how the design and planning of the CLSC respond to these challenges and how these metrics may contribute to this objective.
