The Electric Ship Research and Development Consortium (ESRDC) is developing the Smart Ship System Design (S3D) environment, which is a collaborative design environment that brings together many engineering disciplines early in the ship design process. While there is impressive capability available within the S3D platform, there is a dividing line between what should be inherent capability and what should be kept external to S3D and provided as enhancement with a smooth interface. For example, there exist a number of very capable programs for naval architecture calculations such as intact and damaged stability, resistance and power estimation, hullform optimization, structural integrity, and more. We take as a sample GRC’s Paramarine [2013], an integrated computer aided design and engineering tool available today for commercial ship, warship and submarine design.
