Disassembly, a process of separating the end of life (EOL) product into discrete components for re-utilizing their associated residual values, is an important enabler for the sustainable manufacturing. This work focuses on the modeling of the disassembly planning related information and develops a disassembly information model (DIM) based on an extensive investigation of various informational aspects in the domain of disassembly planning. The developed DIM, which represents an appropriate systematization and classification of the products, processes, uncertainties, and degradations related information, follows a layered modeling methodology in which DIM is subdivided into layers with the intent to separate general knowledge into different levels of abstractions and reach a balance between information reusability and information usability. Two prototype disassembly planning related applications have been incorporated to validate the usability and reusability of the developed DIM.
