The purpose of this research is to create a set of methods, software tools and industry validated cases, that enable disassembly enterprise managers to execute different computer controlled production control and management programs, that will help them to run their real-world disassembly lines and factories. In this paper, we particularly focus on the challenges of dynamically scheduling and balancing lean, reconfigurable disassembly cells and lines. This project is an integral part of our Web-enabled Virtual Disassembly Manager (webVDM) project for electronic product/ process designers, disassembly line managers and operators. webVDM is a major MERC/NJIT R&D group effort, supported by several funding agencies, companies and institutions and their hard working staff and RAs (Research Assistants).
