Abstract: This paper addresses the problem of profit-oriented disassembly line design and balancing considering partial disassembly, presence of hazardous parts and uncertainty of task processing times. Few papers have studied the stochastic disassembly line balancing problem and existing approaches have focused on heuristic and metaheuristic methods. Most existing work has concentrated on complete disassembly where task times are assumed to be normal random variables and where AND/OR graphs are not considered. The obje…
