Remanufacturing requires new skills in forecasting, planning, inventory management, and many other supply chain practices. The main complicating characteristics of remanufacturing were identified in 2000. In 2011, the evolution in the solution of these complications from 2000 to 2009 was identified, but more practical research was needed. The tools developed during that period were mostly quantitative, based on mathematical models and simulation but not associated with any kind of specific remanufacturing operation. For this reason, this chapter analyzes practical research developed from 2010 to 2019 by including tools methods and techniques related to supply chain for remanufacturing operations. The contribution of this literature review is to determine the trends developed in the last 10 years to mitigate the effects of the complications generated by the remanufacturing operations. As an added value, the cases of studies that include applications to specific remanufactured products is highlighted.
