A submersible design algorithm has been analyzed in detail. As a result, a program named DVCAD is proposed. It aids the designer at the most creative phases of the design. While intended mainly for submersibles, the approach can be adopted for work with other complex systems which can be described as well known principles but with an arrangement difficult to define. However, this would require changes in the expert procedures and component database. The paper describes the principal problems which must be solved to balance requirements for high flexibility, easy to read graphical interface, real time operation and software as well as hardware limitations.
