A real-time assessment of the ship design complexity

  title={A real-time assessment of the ship design complexity},
  author={J.-D. Caprace and P. Rigo},
  journal={Computer-Aided Design},
The paper introduces an innovative complexity metric for pa ssenger ships taking into account the shape complexity of steel parts, the assembly complexity and the material com plexity. The goal is to provide the designer with such information throughout the design process so that an e ffici nt design is obtained at the first design run. Real-time assessment of complexity and quality measurements is rathe r imp rative to ensure e fficient and effective optimality search, and to allow real-time… CONTINUE READING
