Abstract: The companies have to reuse/recover/recycle their products at the end of product life according to new environmental regulations to achieve sustainability. The disassembly process is one of the most important processes to recover/recycle/maintain products safely, economically and efficiently. A process model for disassembly needs to be developed and integrated with the product information model to collect and retrieve the necessary information as per the requirements of different EOL activities. In this paper, different activities related to end-of-life processes (along with the disassembly process) have been studied extensively. The process models related to those activities are created in the IDEF0 diagrams that will help us identify the information flow among the EOL activities. The information flow is then used to develop an information model for the complete, consistent and unambiguous information exchange among different systems.
