|Title:||Disassembly Process Information Model for Remanufacturing|
|Published:||April 22, 2013|
|Abstract:||The disassembly process is an essential activity performed on out-of-service products for remanufacturing. A disassembly process includes many subprocesses, such as separation, cleaning, repair, replacement, and inspection. The main purpose of performing these activities is to increase sustainability, which includes reducing environmental impact, increasing economic value, and extending societal benefits to meet the goal of sustainable development. This report describes a disassembly process information model. It is an integrated information model with the following key components: workpiece, material content, equipment, and workflow. The workflow aspect supports the modeling of operations, operation sequences, decision making, branching, and joining. The model provides a foundation for computer-aided disassembly software systems development.|
