Abstract

The Web-enabled Virtual Disassembly Manager (web-VDM) for Electronic Product/Process Designers, Disassembly Line Managers and Operators project 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). The purpose of this paper is to introduce a segment of this project, by discussing object oriented, validated modeling methods and software tools, as well as a system architecture in UML (Unified Modeling Language) that enables individual, as well as eCommerce-linked, B2B (business to business) collaborative enterprises to analyze and design all critical aspects of their demanufacturing and logistics processes over the web, manage their disassembly lines and provide electronic support systems for operators. (Please note, that other papers at this conference, as well as papers published elsewhere discuss other aspects and subsystems of our integrated web-VDM architecture). Besides an overview of our system model, this paper focuses on specific, web-enabled electronic support tools for eCommerce of harvested components and parts, as well as tools for disassembly line managers and operators. Furthermore, integrated with the above system, we demonstrate our tools, and our novel 3D part identification and electronic object/component marking method, that helps line managers to identify physical objects/components electronically and then publish these objects over the web as part of our webVDM database.
