Abstract

Reverse logistics (RL) has been regarded as a key driving force for remanufacturing. However, there are great uncertainties in terms of quality and quantity of used components for RL. There are also complexities in suppliers and operations. These make decision-making of RL very complex. In order to identify the best collection mode for used components, a demand-matching oriented Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) method is established. In this method, the damage level and remaining service life are firstly incorporated into the evaluation criteria of reuse modes, then a hybrid method (AHP-EW) that integrates Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Entropy Weight (EW) method is applied to derive criteria weights and the grey Multi-Attributive Border Approximation Area Comparison (MABAC) is adopted to rank the collection modes. Finally, sensitivity analysis is implemented to test the stability of the proposed method, and a demands-matching method is proposed to validate and evaluate the feasibility of the optimal alternative. The collection of used pressurizers is taken as case study to validate the applicability of the proposed model. The results showed the effectiveness of the proposed method in MCDM of RL.
