In manufacturing plants, it is expected that production processes usually yield some reject materials or parts. Accordingly, reduction in material waste could ultimately reduce manufacturing cost. The non-conforming materials or parts are usually found in Supply Chains during: a) inspection of received goods from suppliers; b) production processing; and c) delivery of goods to Customers. In general the reject materials or parts could be grouped under three categories: a) materials ought to be sent back to its source; b) less useful materials distant for being scrapped; and c) materials that could reused after performing some rework. Some of the completed products containing some minor faulty parts could be dispatched to Factory Seconds Outlets for sale at reduced price. This paper presents a method for incorporating sustainability in production decisions.
