About this book


The concepts of Quality Management (QM) have been used for a long time by manufacturing companies to ensure customers receive a constant and high quality level of products. But what happens with remanufactured or refurbished products?


Quality Management in Reverse Logistics: A Broad Look on Quality Issues and Their Interaction with Closed-Loop Supply Chains discusses the new, promising area of QM and Reverse Logistics interaction. More specifically, it examines and evaluates a number of QM tools and techniques, which can be applied in practice in order to understand, review and improve any closed-loop supply chain process.
