The growing amount of waste has caused severe environmental problems such as the shortage of landfill space and the high costs of waste disposal. Therefore, it is required to reuse and recycle the end-of-life products effectively from the viewpoint of economic efficiency. In this paper, we propose a disassembly scheduling method which uses a genetic algorithm to generate an optimal disassembly schedule including both the disassembly processes of multiple products and the post processes for reusing and recycling the disassembled parts for the minimization of the whole disassembly and post process times.
