The design of an interoperable self-supported reverse logistics management system

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Green Supply Chain Management (SCM) strategies emerged as a response to business competition with commitment tothe environment. Reverse Logistics is part of this strategy that allowsmaterials and products to be returned for re-use, re-manufacture or re-furbishing, requiring effective and efficient cooperation between supply chain (SC)firms. However, the lack of interoperability affects the alignment of operations with partners. Thiswork presentsa methodology to design the cooperationbetween partnersusing the systematic approach that is provided byAxiomatic DesignTheoryand a case study to demonstrate the application of this method to design a self-supported reverse logistics management system.
