Paper Abstract

In this paper, we apply the Dynamic Kanban System for Disassembly Line (DKSDL) to an industrial setting. The product considered is a second-generation industrial voice recognition client unit. The company manufacturing this device has moved on to the next generation device, which has more memory, faster CPU and a standardized OS support. There are many of the older generation clients in the customer base, which are being upgraded to the new generation resulting in a large number of the older units at hand. These units are being returned to the manufacturing facility to be processed. The casing and some other components are being used in the new design and can be disassembled and stocked as refurbished items to be used in returned products processing. The resulting DKSDL for this disassembly process is modeled using simulation and the results are discussed.
