DESIGNING FUZZY REVERSE SUPPLY CHAIN NETWORK FOR E-WASTE
Published: 5 Oct 2019
Abstract: The reverse supply chain network for e-Waste can be realized with certain operations; e-waste collection, separation, renewal activities, disassembly, recycling and distribution of refurbished products, semi-finished products, raw materials and harmful materials. This study aims to design the reverse supply chain network by considering the responsibility of the producer and the fuzzy parameters that should be dealt complying with the regulation. In order to better reflect the uncertainties in real life in the model, the parameters related to sales prices, product weights, costs, and product demands are assumed to be fuzzy. When the results are examined, the closer the μ value gets to 1, the more strictly the ranges in the equality constraints are controlled. It is also seen that there is a decrease in total gain and total cost.
Keywords: reverse supply chain network design, e-waste, fuzzy optimization
