This paper considers the disassembly-to-order (DTO) problem where end-of-life (EOL) products are purchased for disassembly in order to satisfy the demand for specified numbers of components. Previous work in the literature solved the DTO problem with multiple uncertainties under a single objective while others solved the multi-criteria model with a single uncertainty. This paper develop a multi-criteria DTO model that would takes into consideration multiple system uncertainties and variability. The multi-criteria DTO model was solved using preemptive goal programming (PGP). The main objective was to determine optimal number of take-back EOL products in every period from each supplier in order to satisfy the demand of components and materials while trying to achieve the aspiration levels of multiple goals. A numerical example is considered to illustrate the model approach.
