Abstract

It has been recognized that appropriate disassembly of used products is necessary in order to make recycling economically and environmentally viable in the current state of the art reprocessing technology. This paper describes a graph-based heuristic approach to automatically generate the disassembly planning for electromechanical products. The planning is divided into four stages, geometric assembly representation, cut-vertex search analysis, disassembly precedence matrix analysis, and disassembly sequences and plan generation. A personal computer is used to illustrate the example of disassembly sequences generation.
