Design for Integrated Assembly and Disassembly of Automotive Products 2006-01-1423

Manufacturing industries have implemented design for manufacturing and design for assembly guidelines and techniques for many years. These lead to better designed products and lower manufacturing and assembly costs. In recent years, due to environmental and economical reasons, there is a growing interest in developing effective methods for product design considering product disassembly, component remanufacturing and material recovery. As a result of which numerous design guidelines for disassembly and algorithms for disassembly sequence generation are proposed. However, only a handful research articles presented integrated approaches to design for assembly and disassembly. In this paper, an integrated method is proposed to analyze the ease of assembly and disassembly using analytic hierarchic process (AHP) approach.
