This paper describe about how reverse supply chain is important in manufacturing system similar to the forward supply chain and suggested an feasible mathematical model for the reverse supply chain considering remanufacturing . We know that because of emerging innovations and technologies, products are changing faster than ever due to this now consumer are interested to adopt new product rather than the older products. This results environment gets deteriorates due to steady growth of wastage in the form of not in used products. Product gets obsolete due to many reasons like there not functioning, old technology and many more. So our papers discussed about mathematical model which incorporate between returned products and the out coming parts in reverse supply chain in manufacturing system considering remanufacturing.
