 Stochastic inventory models are investigated for a salvaging facility that disassembles a type of end-of-life product for recovery. A single-period newsvendor type of setting is considered to capture the basic tradeoffs between unit cost and revenue structures under three different product structure and recovery operation schemes. A numerical study is conducted to analyze the effects of dependencies due to product and recovery operation structures.
