Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to review the fundamental methodology and its development of intelligent disassembly planning research.

Design/methodology/approach

Following a brief introduction, this paper first discusses the fundamental problems associated with disassembly planning and analysis. And then considers the role of intelligent optimization methods in the disassembly planning field. This is followed by a summary and conclusion.

Findings

Many advances have been made in computerized intelligent disassembly planning research, which is a natural evolutionary result of both traditional solving methodology and much research effort over past two decades. But as yet, some fundamental limitations are also rooted in this computational model‐based methodology.

Originality/value

The paper provides a fundamental review on the development of computerized intelligent disassembly planning research.
