Finding the optimum route of ship pipes is a complicated and time-consuming process. Experience of designers is the main tool in this process. To reduce design man-hours and human errors an expert system shell and a geometric modeling kernel are integrated to automate the design process. Existing algorithms for routing problems have been analyzed most of(More)
Within a shipyard, many designers each having their own design objective cooperate in a complex design situation where a variety of software tools run on different hardware platforms. The exchange of design data models among these heterogeneous CAD systems is a difficult task because the systems involved have different data structures optimized for their(More)
