Successful advanced Naval ship design must be based on integrating multiple cross-functional systems. Future Naval systems will require innovation and a systematic integration in order to achieve increasingly demanding mission profiles in a cost effective manner. Since a large amount of the design cost up to 80 is locked during the conceptual phase, it is important to include both the traditional Naval Architecture concerns and the specialized war fighting operational objectives within the conceptual design. Accurate assessment of proper specifications and design objectives using a system of systems cost conscious design environment will eliminate situations where cost becomes prohibiting because performance expectations were set at each system level without coordination and without a parallel interaction among systems performance and objectives. Developments are performed for developing a system for Tree-Multi-Disciplinary Optimization under Uncertainty T-MDO-U and including Fast Running Model FRM technology in the optimization process.
