Abstract

The importance of product modularity in mitigating negative product-related environmental effects has been widely recognized in practice and in research. This study analyzes how a company's supply chain strategy is linked with a product's optimal level of modularity and how this affects efficient reverse logistics decision making. We address this problem by formulating two optimization problems; one for a company adopting a push and one for a company adopting a pull supply chain
strategy.
