The process of ship hull form or lines generation ship design with a computer aid employing a typewriter terminal is divided into two phases: (1) representing the ships' lines, and (2) modifying them to conform to good practice. In either phase, displaying lines for visual inspection is of great importance for work efficiency. Cathode ray tube displays are at present in wide use, but typewriters can also be used as simpler equipment for this purpose. Equally important is the modification technique used to achieve the desired surface. In this paper, a technique for small modification based on both total derivative concept and the least mean square method is proposed.
