Closed-Loop Production Supply Chain Model and SAP eCommerce As you implement initiatives that promote sustainability it makes sense for your business to find solutions and initiatives to reduce waste while gaining profit from reverse and forward supply chains. Using a closed-loop production supply chain can be the solution you need. This way you can minimize waste and bring previously discarded goods back into your value chain particularly those that can be dismantled for parts repaired or resold. Like most production processes this model requires careful production and demand planning as well as business forecasting. SAP eCommerce may be able to help with that. Also known as up-cycling closed-loop production is a process that may help your business appeal to the new generation of customers particularly the Millennials and Gen Z. It shows that you care about the environment while providing transparency and visibility into your production practices. Consumers are likely to choose you when they know that your brand supports their causes and practices.
