A Sustainable Approach for Smart Supply Chain with Quality Humiliation and Carbon Emission Cost
Most decisive principles affecting customers’ ordering decision is quality of the products. The intention of the work is to provide the sustainable decisions such as order lot-size and total number of lot-size to create a smart SC in view of minimum carbon emissions and joint total cost. This research considers an imperfect production vendor-buyer inventory system involving quality degradation of raw material and carbon emission cost. The vendor’s production process produces some imperfect products, even manufactured products inspect twice, which are examined by buyer and those are return back to vendor in the subsequent shipment. We incorporate the emissions throughout the production processes, transport and storage. Mathematical based inventory model is developed to attain the sustainable decisions which are illustrated numerically.
