Abstract

A majority of the products get discarded at end-of-life (EoL) causing environmental pollution and resulting in a complete loss of all materials and embodied energy. Adopting a closed-loop material flow approach can aid prevention of such losses and enable EoL value recovery from these products. Design and engineering decision choices and how products are used impact the capability to implement EoL strategies such as disassembly. Some underlying factors affecting the capability to implement product disassembly have been discussed in previous studies. However, relevant metrics and attributes are not well defined and comprehensive methods to quantitatively evaluate disassemblability is lacking. This study will first identify key lifecycle-oriented metrics affecting disassemblability. Then a methodology is proposed for the quantitative evaluation of disassemblability considering the quality of returns, product-design characteristics and process technology requirements. Finally, an industrial case study is presented to demonstrate the application of the proposed method.
