Abstract:

An automated design process is being developed to examine the potential impact of design changes made to a surface ship auxiliary system. This automated design process will uniquely allow the examination of how design changes to an auxiliary system will impact different sized combatants. The design process will be composed of two main programs -- a Ship Parametric Modeling Program in which the ship and auxiliary systems model is developed in a parametric computer program, and a Benefit Analysis Model in which the systems characteristics e.g., weight, volume, and cost are calculated for comparison to alternative components and system concepts. This report highlights the work done on the automated design process in FY 1992, specifically the work done on the Ship Parametric Modeling Program....
