New problems are introduced in reverse logistics by supply chain planning systems, which demand modern approaches. In this study, we have addressed the specific problem of the reverse logistics for EOL (end-of-life) products. This is to calculate the quantity of the products to be disassembled in the specific period of time in order to achieve the demand of multiple components during the specific period of time and also during the subsequent times. To solve the problem, excel programming based model was presented. The problem results provide the timing and the number of each product type to be disassembled. This is to achieve the components demand required at minimal disposal and disassembly costs. The methodology for obtaining the solution is illustrated with an example.
