Paper Abstract

This paper addresses the disassembly planning of heterogeneous batches of returned products. Disassembly is used to enhance the release of material fractions for recovery. The mass fractions of materials that are actually released during the recovery process are not known in advance and henceforth decisions concerning disassembly are to be made under uncertainty. The present paper provides a stochastic programming method to deal with uncertainty and to assess the value of information.
