This paper proposes a model and solution for integrated production and inventory of new and reusable bottling packages. The inventory which didn’t match the production needs is caused by the difference of production policy and the reverse logistics policy from distribution center. In addition, this problem is also influenced by cleanliness level of the bottles and the reject bottles during transportation. The solution of this model uses enumeration approach and simultaneous approach (using software LINGO 14.0). From the calculation, this model obtains a valid result. The company can reduce the inventory cost about 8.88% using enumeration approach and 8.84% using simultaneous approach. Also, this model isn’t sensitive in terms of changes of parameter to optimum solution.
