Abstract

A promising solution approach to deal with the uncertainty associated with disassembly yield is sensor embedded products (SEPs) which involve sensors implanted during the production process. This study presents a quantitative assessment of the impact of SEPs on the various performance measures of a kanban-controlled air conditioner disassembly line. First, separate design of experiments studies based on orthogonal arrays are carried out for the cases with and without SEPs. Then, the results of paired-t tests comparing two cases based on different performance measures are presented.
