Waste reduction for assembly products is essential for Circular Economy in not only European Unions but also all over the world. It is also known that recycling contributes to the waste reduction. In order to build the recycling process in a product lifecycle effectively and efficiently, a process integration should be required among manufacturing planning, modularity design and multivariate process validation. This study proposes a process integration concept for the waste reduction among the manufacturing planning, modularization and validation.
