This paper shall show how marine engineers can derive optimum structures that meet design requirements with the best possible mass distribution and minimum welding effort. This results in a ship that is less expensive to manufacture and maintain. This paper shall also highlight how marine engineers can rapidly highlight the effect of these designs and their changes on product attributes such as weight and balance. Providing such process and tools for data consolidation, tracking and reporting, enables constituents of the extended enterprise to contribute more to product development by focusing on identifying, managing and improving mass properties and associated opportunities, risks and uncertainties.
