The purpose of this literature review is to explore the current state of knowledge and understanding of the cost of designing radar systems for the maritime sector, with a focus on remanufacturing. The review aims to identify the key cost engineering techniques and tools used in the design of radar systems, as well as the best practices and challenges encountered in this area. The review also aims to identify any knowledge gaps or areas that require further research in order to improve the cost and quality of radar system remanufacturing in the maritime sector. By collating and synthesizing the existing literature, this review aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state of the art in radar system design costing for remanufacturing in the maritime sector, and to identify key areas for future research and development. The remanufacturing of radar systems for the maritime sector has garnered increasing interest in recent years due to the need to address the end-of-life stages of such products. However, there is limited literature available on the cost of designing radar systems for the maritime sector and how product design techniques can be used in remanufacturing processes. This study aims to review the current literature on design costing frameworks, cost trade-off techniques, and cost estimation methods used in other sectors that can be applied to maritime companies in order to improve the reliability and quality of radar systems for end-users, shipyards, naval forces, and oil and gas tankers. By conducting an exhaustive benchmarking analysis of industrial best practices, this study aims to identify how product life cycle costing solutions can be used to reduce the cost and improve the quality of future maritime products and new radar systems through custom configuration changes. Additionally, the study aims to understand the importance of cost-driven strategies for remanufacturers to remain competitive in the second lifecycle of products
