The Management of production and inventory control associated activities in remanufacturing production system has received attention by practitioners in the last two decades. This is due to the increased productivity, limited supply of virgin materials, stringent environmental requirements for product disposal and treatment as well as substantial change in global sustainability regulations. In order to constantly attain the supply chain cost savings for manufacturing operations, an integrated production planning model in remanufacturing by considering component obsolescence is developed. The aim of this develoed model is to minimise an overall costs for production with remanufacturing operations. A numerical application is demosntrated to show its practical usefulness and flexibility in a remanufacturing production plan by considering different obsolete time periods for used components returns streams. Finally, the constributions of this study and future works are discussed.
