A New Methodology for Integration of End-of-Life Option Determination and Disassemblability Analysis Feri Afrinaldi, Muhamad Zameri Mat Saman and Awalluddin Mohamad Shaharoun Abstract Nowadays many countries have developed new legislations which are aimed at greater emphasis to force manufacturers to reuse, recycle, recover, and remanufacture their products at the end of their life.

Therefore, the economic aspects were involved in quantifying the recyclability. In order to determine that a component is suitable for recycling or not, suitability for recycling is used as the indicator. It is the ratio between the cost (in currency unit/kg) of a new material equivalent to the recycled material and the cost of disposal (on a landfill or through incineration) if the material is not recycled, versus the costs of disassembly, reconditioning, and logistics. 7 Conclusion A very important contribution of this research is that the developed methodology integrates the end-of-life option determination and disassemblability evaluation in one framework.
