Computer technology is presently at a point where interactive programming, coupled with graphical input and output devices, is finding cost effective engineering applications. These relatively new devices and programming techniques offer closer communication between man and computer. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the reader to these devices and techniques and to describe how others have used them productively. An attempt has also been made to assess the extent of computer applications in the ship design area. Results of a survey questionnaire are included along with suggestions for the practical application of this new technology in the marine field.
