Increasing legislative and environmental pressure requires businesses to become more responsive to products that either have been returned or that are at the end of their useful lives. Life cycles are getting shorter, and efficient handling can save large amounts of money since many materials can be extracted and reused or redistributed. Reverse logistics (RL) and closed loop supply chains (CLSC) have garnered growing interest as a way to manage this reverse flow of product in a cost effective way. Introduction to Management of Reverse Logistics (RL) and Closed Loop Supply Chain(CLSC) Processes provides an overall treatment of CLSC and RL, a qualitative and quantitative presentation of the size and dimensions of the overall market and industry, and a look at future trends. The author discusses key issues and trends in management and operation, strategic, tactical, and operational issues for implementation, and a pragmatic evaluation of the realities of running a CLSC or an RL . . .

Enhancing situational awareness (SA) is a major design goal for projects in many fields, including aviation, ground transportation, air traffic control, nuclear power, medicine, space and systems maintenance, but little information exists in an integral format to support this. Human factors practitioners can be helped to create designs to support SA across a wide variety of domains and design issues by applying theoretical and empirical information on SA to the system design process and by using basic perception guidelines and human-­computer interface guidelines. For good user interface design it is helpful to deal with SA as a whole. This requires the gestalt integration of information across a wide variety of information sources where practitioners must juggle multiple competing goals. Designing for Situation Awareness requires that designers understand how people acquire and interpret information in such worlds and appreciate the factors that undermine this process. This . . .

Professions and professional activity are undergoing dramatic changes as we approach the millennium. This interdisciplinary volume presents an overview of conceptual issues and considers the practical issues facing professionals today. It has two key objectives: to understand the nature of the changes in professional activity; and to see this restructuring in the context of wider socio-­economic processes. Examining the professional areas of medicine, education, law and accountancy, the authors illustrate how the nature of professional activity is changing: decision-­making power is being shifted away from the holders of specialised knowledge and towards clients and managers. Although this might seem to signify an end to traditional notions of professionalism involving trust, responsibility and self-­organisation, they argue that this does not necessarily mean an end to professionalism itself, but rather a restructuring of its significance and functioning.
