A product generation model (PGM) integrates information from several different generations of a product to facilitate remanufacturing and eventual reuse, by storing all the information from each product generation. Using this method, a new or remanufactured component is checked for compatibility with the existing system before it is installed. New PGM architecture based on polychromatic sets uses sets and Boolean matrices to manage the logical relationships between the different generations of product data and is a highly efficient data management system to control multiple lifecycles of a product. The implementation process of this system for remanufacturing and reuse based on the product generation model is analyzed in this paper.
