The required features of a complete ship arrangement design system are discussed. These features include interactive graphics, central data base, user oriented approach, realistic input requirements, three dimensional design capability, useful output, multiple entry or exit points and the ability to optimize. Existing ship arrangement programs, most of which were developed for the Navy, are reviewed and compared with the requirements and goals outlined above. The history of these programs demonstrates the iterative nature of the development of computer-aided design systems.
