Abstract: Industrial products’ reuse, recovery and recycling are very important because of their environmental and economic benefits. Effective product disassembly planning methods can improve their recovery efficiency and reduce their bad environmental impact. However, the existing approaches pay little attention to sequence-dependent disassembly with resource constraints such as limited disassembly operators and tools, which makes the current planning methods ineffective in practice. This paper considers a multiobjective resource-constrained and sequence-dependent disassembly optimization problem with disassembly precedence constraints. Energy consumption is adopted to evaluate the disassembly efficiency. Its use with traditional optimization criterion leads to a novel multiobjective optimization model such that energy consumption and disassembly time are minimized while disassembly profit is maximized. Since the problem complexity increases with the number of components in a product, a lexicographic multiobjective scatter search method is proposed to solve the proposed multiobjective optimization problem. Its effectiveness is verified by comparing the results of linear weight scatter search and genetic algorithms. The results show that it is able to provide a better solution in a short execution time and fulfills the precedence requirement in a product structure and resource constraints.
