Smart Reverse Supply Chain: An Application of IoT to Green Manufacturing

Abstract:

Article Preview

Reverse supply chain (RSC) management, which is oriented towards the entire lifecycle of products, has been concerned with the emerging of green manufacturing. Based on radio frequency identification (RFID), sensing and intelligent technologies, the rapid development of the Internet of things (IoT) will form a kind of smart reverse supply chain (SRSC), which is able to enhance the reverse supply chain real-time information transmission, as well as reduce the uncertainty and complexity of the product recycling process. Some problems of RSC are analyzed in this paper, and then the SRSC system network topology is proposed. Furthermore, the technical integrated architecture and related key technologies are discussed.
