We present a new Kanban system specifically developed for material control and scheduling in a disassembly environment. We briefly highlight the differences between the new (modified) and the traditional Kanban system. We assert that in the disassembly environment, the Kanban system is superior to the push system currently practiced in industry. To that end, we consider a case example and test its performance by experimenting with several different scenarios. In all instances, the Kanban system outperforms the push system.
