The number of manufacturers engaged in reuse/recycling activities and there are growing in response to the growth in extended producer responsibility. The reuse/recycling methods in some manufacturing processes have established, but there are some problems concerning those cost and the stock quantities and stock points through supply chain. The circulation supply chain including processes from the collection to product reuse/recycling is called Closed-Loop Supply Chain (CLSC). CLSC has traditional forward supply chain activities and a set of activities required for reverse supply chain. The purpose of this paper is to design CLSC model including Vender Managed Inventory (VMI). We study the availability of the proposal using simulation in which we investigated the VMI among CLSC in consideration of collection rate and reclamation rate in reverse supply chain. We confirm the results of simulations show the efficiency of the proposal.
