Abstract

In this paper, the current state of a software based system to support the design for disassembly is presented. This system, called “Design Support System”, is based on a common partial product model that is capable of representing a large spectrum of information relevant to disassembly and recycling, which is used to describe centrally stored product data. To allow a wide range of tools and applications to access this data, a distributed object oriented approach is proposed, based on CORBA as an open and accepted standard. Using a standard CAD software and a modelling/analysis tool for product structures as an example, it is shown how within such a framework existing applications can be adapted to interact with custom-made software.

Keywords: design for disassembly, product model, CAD, CORBA
