Disassembly planning and costing is a major task in the achievement of sustainable manufacturing. This paper presents a systematic approach to identify the feasible ways to disassemble a product then to select the most economical one using reliable time data gathered from experimental and practice-oriented sources. The disassembly process is modeled after the Petri Net approach, a technique that has proven to be fairly popular with the research community in the last few decades. The result of our systematic approach is a reliable derivation for a time-effective disassembly plan.
