This paper introduces a method of organizing ship design data that is significantly different from existing approaches. This new method of data organization allows data classification systems to be expanded to meet new demands, while at the same time retaining the constancy necessary to keep old data from becoming obsolete. In addition, it allows different engineers to view the same data different ways to meet their own needs. The net result can be reduced cost to the design agency, as data classification systems using this approach will stand the test of time longer. Also, improvement in the ship design process can be expected as the greater flexibility of this approach will allow engineers to do their jobs more effectively. (Author)
