Abstract

Marine system design is concerned with planning and development of huge and complex systems. The paper discusses current problems in design and puts forward a set of requirements for CAD systems. It is pointed out that it is important to understand and exploit the capabilities of both the human and the computer. Expert Systems have been identified as an important method for future design systems. Two current projects on application of ES in design are discussed in the last part of the paper.
