Abstract

Environmentally conscious design and manufacturing (ECDM) is becoming a very important issue in the manufacturing community. Adequate product reuse and recycling can greatly reduce waste generation, thus increasing product environmental compatibility. Design for disassembly analysis is a building block of the ECDM system. It is able to design or redesign products so that a higher percentage of the component parts can be reused or recycled. In this study, an economic model of disassembly analysis is formulated and integrated with an object oriented product model. Due to the nonlinear and combinatorial characteristics of the problem, a simulated anneal
