This paper addresses the disassembly-to-order (DTO) and the disassembly sequence planning (DSP) problems and employs a multiple objective tabu search (MOTS) algorithm to solve them. The focus of the study is on the disassembly operations of end-of-life (EOL) products taken back from their last users (owners). The proposed approach aims at disassembling the EOL products for reusing, recycling, storing and properly disposing them in an environmentally benign manner. Thus, the model controls and… CONTINUE READING
