Abstract : The study was accomplished in four phases: Identification of input data requirements for the total ship simulation model (SHIP 2), analysis of processing requirements for the input data set, programming of automated processing routines, and test and evaluation of the programs. In the first phase, a data element catalogue format was developed, and utilized to provide a catalogue of input data for SHIP 2. In the second phase, the input processing requirements were identified. A set of processes to be automated was determined, based on considerations of feasibility and utility. During the third phase, computer programs were written, following a general programming procedure that was developed for programs of this type. Finally, the programs were tested and evaluated for effectiveness and efficiency. (Author)
