The new marine research and development project (SHOPSY) is based on the very successful German 'Ship of the Future' project (SdZ). The main aim of SHOPSY is to reduce the workload for the remaining crew and change the ship's automation into a highly intelligent monitoring system. In the first part of this paper the six development topics are described by emphasising the following items (1) application of knowledge based systems; (2) decision support instead of alarms; (3) general data base and documentation: (4) advanced nautical systems: (5) condition oriented maintenance systems: (6) energy management system. In the second part of the paper the main development topic 'Computer Aided Decision Support and Information System for Ship Operation' (RESI) is introduced. The development targets and programs are described and examples of the function of the diagnostic and decision support system are given.
