Abstract

Disassembly sequence planning plays an important role in the end-of-life treatment of electrical and electronic equipment waste (e-waste). Effective planning methods can improve recovery rates and reduce environmental impacts of e-waste. In previous work, neither mathematical models nor optimization algorithms offered a satisfactory solution for this multi-objective disassembly problem. We present a multi-objective model for the problem and a modified teaching-learning-based optimization (MTLBO) algorithm to find the Pareto-optimal frontier. We use numerical simulations to demonstrate and verify the effectiveness and robustness of the algorithm. To do effective disassembly planning, all the participants in the lifecycle of e-waste should work together. Disassembly and recovery of e-waste involve complex processes across the lifecycle. Information support services, disassembly modeling and optimization services must be integrated using computer networks. We also propose a service-oriented framework to support business integration for the participants in the e-waste lifecycle. Effective and optimized disassembly planning can be achieved by invoking the related distributed services. The proposed framework is a novel e-business application for the end-of-life treatment of e-waste.
