This is a seed phase project lasting from 6 up to 9 months.
Industrial circular economy offers an opportunity for companies to act more sustainably and produce in a more resource-efficient way. In order to close the cycle successfully, companies must be able to disassemble used parts easily and cost-effectively. New methods of automated and flexible disassembly have to be developed.
The DREAMS project aims to investigate in tow steps how existing assembly lines can be used to disassemble used products for circular economy:
– Analysis on challenges and potentials for companies using the same lines for assembly and dismantling and assessment of the constraints and requirements for the lines,
– Simulation of the integrated assembly and disassembly lines and mathematical optimization for statements on possible utilization and capacity utilization.
