Many a supply chain today is involved in reprocessing of used products, which requires a series of activities that are performed by multiple parties, viz., collection centers, recovery facilities, etc. Such a supply chain is called reverse supply chain. In this paper, we propose a three-phase approach for the selection of efficient collection centers in a region where a reverse supply chain is to be designed. The first phase identifies the selection criteria, the second phase uses the eigen vector method to give relative weights to the selection criteria, and the third phase uses the Taguchi loss function to select efficient collection centers.
