Integration of model-based systems engineering tools in the holistic ship design framework
van Vugt, J.
Modern design procedures in maritime transportation are faced by multiple challenges related to technical and operational constraints for safety, energy efficiency, cost effectiveness and environmental performance. These requirements, in combination with a wide range of machinery technologies, result in a complex landscape of solutions which can be successfully explored using Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approaches. Integrating MBSE tools in the ship design cycle is a complex task that requires specification of the interface between distinct design phases, the identification of parameters to be exchanged and the selection of appropriate protocols to arrive at an automated process. Managing these connections becomes a complex process. In the EC-funded research project HOLISHIP (Horizon 2020), these problems were successfully tackled aiming at the holistic, multi-objective, multi-disciplinary and multi-fidelity optimization of ship design, operation and retrofitting. This paper describes the integration methods and communication protocols used for connecting various MBSE tools within Holiship.
