Closed loops depict supply chains for which Original Equipment
Manufacturer reintegrate their returned products into their own
production network. While the reverse logistics research has
extensively addressed the technical aspects of product
reintegration, very few insights are available on whether OEMs
should commit themselves to a closed-loop. The structure of the
monograph is aligned to the decision-making process of Original
Equipment Manufacturers willing to investigate the potential of
closed-loops. This decision-making process is structured around
fundamental questions managers are expected to answer prior to
running a circular supply chain: Does a closed-loop fit with the
corporate objectives? Is it profitable to run a closed-loop? How
should OEMs deal with free-riders? Competition? Which
product/technology/location setup leads to a profit-maximizing
supply chain? The planning framework is finally applied to two case
studies from the tire and the computer industry.
