This course provides students with a systems-centric view to explore the financial management components needed to develop best practices in reverse logistics applications in manufacturing, retail and in the military. A systems view of total life cycle cost will be calculated and compared to the benefits or value added by incorporating a reverse logistics process to manufacturing and retail operations. Students will analyze a potential reverse logistics case study to determine the short and long term financial implications to the company and to the environment. The student will examine how to define the problem and the core assumptions that define the problem space.
