The author discusses a number of important design factors which the Engineer and Operator should keep in mind; namely, the meaning and cost of ship performance, the importance of life cycle cost, and the effect of the design spiral. Specific examples are cited explaining the impact that compromises between several performance features can have on a ship design. The message emphasized is that ship performance never comes cheaply and that the Engineer and Operator are in the best positions to make the difficult decisions necessary to produce a balanced ship design.
