In this paper we study the effect of the sudden breakdown of material handling equipment on the performance of recently introduced MKSD (Modified Kanban System for Disassembly). We also study behavior of a newly developed JIT system for disassembly called DKSDL (Dynamic Kanban System for Disassembly Line) under the same conditions. DKSDL dynamically adjusts the number of disassembly production kanbans in or der to offset blocking and starvation caused by these factors during a disassembly cycle. We compare the overall performances of the MKSD and the DKSDL models under different scenarios. The scenario settings, approach to the solution, results and discussion of these scenarios are included.
