Opportunity Brief #13 describes a computer-based system specifically organized and implemented to aid in the preliminary design of ships and other complex naval systems. The system includes programs that have proved useful as design tools in the past. These include, among others, sea keeping, stability, and calm water resistance programs. In addition an operating system, known as the Design Executive (DEX), allows the designer to use all of the application programs in a uniquely convenient and rational way, because it eliminates many of the rigidities inherent in using "batch"-oriented computer programs and systems. The Brief focuses on DEX and its applications in ship design.
