Abstract

Recoverable manufacturing is becoming an increasingly important alternative to firms as they develop strategies aimed at minimizing waste and resources. In this study proactive expediting policies which have been observed as managerial practice in remanufacturing environments are examined for their effectiveness. It is shown that in this environment product structure complexity significantly affects the choice of proactive expediting policy. Further, this type of proactive expediting does not provide any significant benefits to the manager, on any of the performance measures analyzed.
