ABSTRACT
To ease in the disassembly procedure of discarded products, this paper describes an analytical model of a Disassembly Petri net (DPN) in conjunction with a Hybrid Bayesian network (HBN), for optimal disassembly planning. The DPN models all feasible disassembly steps along with the necessary resources for the operations, whereas the HBN is a belief network that describes knowledge pertaining to various facets of the entire disassembly process (e.g.., the defect rate of a product or the skill of a worker). While the two networks are linked together, pertinent knowledge can flow between them, allowing newly available information to be incorporated into the extended DPN for better decision making.
