On the non-optimality of the average cost approach for inventory models with remanufacturing
International Journal of Production Economics , Volume 79 - Issue 1 p. 67- 73
When analyzing average cost (AC) inventory models, it is common use to add the discount rate times the capital tied up in a product, to the out-of-pocket holding cost rate. This way, capital costs are (roughly) included. In this paper we show that such a method may not always be appropriate for reverse logistics inventory models with both remanufacturing and disposal of returned products.
