The market is varying from minute to minute nowadays. Increase cooperation and pursue the optimal interest of the integrated supply chain become a more effective way than act alone in the competition. In this research, an integrated inventory policy between singleproducer and multi-buyer is developed and two inventory models are built. The first model extends the research of Lin and Lin (2007) by changing the single-buyer system to the multibuyers one. Both backorder of buyers and deteriorating items of each party (producer’s level, buyers’ level, and during transport) are considered herein. The second model is based on the research of Woo et al.(2001) and Model 1 by takes raw material cost and remanufacturing proceeds into account additional. In both model, the producer and buyers collaboratively work at minimizing their total operation cost and the problems are solved under an assumption of equal replenishments and production cycles. The algorithms to find the optimal solutions are given, and numerical examples are presented. Sensitivity for systems parameters is also analyzed and all calculations are completed by software Matlab and Maple.
