FUTURE PROPULSION CONTROL SYSTEMS FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS
The ability to determine rapidly, and with high confidence, the proper control equipment that should be fitted to a new ship at a stipulated date has at least two major benefits. Firstly, it provides information for better decisions to be made on a proposed ship and, secondly, it shortens controls development programs. For this ability to be attained, a well-supported strategy is needed for identifying what the controls are to do and then specifying the optimum control system composed of the maximum amount of well or fully developed, modern sub-systems and components. This paper is concerned with the "what to do" aspect of the process, namely, the rapid derivation of a proper statement of the functional requirements.
