Based on the remanufacturing reverse logistics system, this paper studies the inventory control problem of the entire supply chain. Considering a variety of products and raw materials, we established a multi-product multi-echelon inventory control model of the remanufacturing reverse logistics based on the quantitative examination. Also, a numerical simulation is performed, which shows that the model can reduce the inventory cost of remanufacturing reverse logistics, and provides a theoretical

Then, using sensitivity analysis, it shows that the recovery and the remanufacturing rates of the recycled products have a great in uence on the inventory cost of the reverse logistics, production, and inventory of the manufacturer and the recycling center.
