Abstract

Ship design is complex due to the high degree of interaction among the many disciplines e.g. Naval Architecture, Mechanical and Electrical engineering. In preliminary design stage, major decisions on the dimensions and components should be confirmed. A holistic understanding of the engineering economics is crucial factor in order to make decisions correctly. Thus the aims of this paper is to develop a methodology for selecting a prescriptive combination set of the specific component values that produced the values of the given criteria; and a set of results produced from the above prescriptive values. The multi objective optimisation software created manages to solve many conflicting criteria with complex interrelationships not limited to ship design. It is using combination of mathematical models with LabVIEW and Artificial Neural Network. The benefit of the software is not limited for the ship-owner, shipbuilding companies and shipyard operators, but also very useful for the engineers as an option tool when dealing with Conflict Criteria and Complex Interrelationships problems.
