Abstract

The primary objective of the research is to investigate how to estimate disposal costs being undertaken in defence electronic systems by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and subsequently to ascertain a novel approach to predicting their end-of-life (EOL) cost. It is intended that the OEMs can utilise this method as part of a full life cycle cost analysis at the conceptual design stage. The cost model should also serve as a useful guide to aid decision making at the conceptual design stage. The novelty of this research is that it identifies the significance of disposal costs from the viewpoint of the OEM and provides a generic basis for evaluation of all the major EOL defence electronic systems.
