Abstract

We present a pull system that uses a new approach to facilitate material control and scheduling in a disassembly environment and is called the multi Kanban system for disassembly (MKSD). Within the MKSD is an approach to optimize operation and mitigate supply chain risk factors as well. We also compare the performance of MKSD to its push counterpart. Various scenarios are explored using a case example. For the scenarios, the assumptions, input data and results are presented. The study clearly demonstrates the effectiveness of the multi Kanban system over the push system.
