Abstract

The scope of this chapter addresses the issues related to materials management for closed loop manufacturing based on the integration of material flows management systems with production planning and control systems (PPC) or business systems (like ERP) applicable to remanufacturing environments. It aims to identify and discuss the main issues and further research steps needed in order to improve materials management, as well as assessment of the environmental impact of remanufactured products. The main problems that appear in the area of materials management by shifting from non-sustainable production to closed loop manufacturing have been identified and discussed. The integrated materials management approach has been presented.
