Opportunities at the SNAME Annual Meeting and Expo
Wednesday, October 24, 8:00am – 5:00pm


Course 1: Ship Cost Estimating for Engineers
Instructor: Professor Thomas Lamb
This workshop will introduce engineers to the total fabric of ship cost estimating including Factors Influencing Ship Cost and Cost Growth, Cost Estimating & Industrial Analysis, Shipbuilding Cost Drivers, difference between Cost and Price, Learning Curve, Marine Cost Estimating, Parametric Cost Estimates, Detailed Cost Estimating and Cost Risk Analysis.

Course 2: Early Phase Ship Design
Instructors: Sean Walsh & Ben Capuco
This course is an overview of the early stage ship-design process, encompassing feasibility studies and preliminary design to show how an integrated ship design is developed, starting with a statement of the owner's requirements, proceeding through the development and refinement of the requirements by means of ship feasibility studies and, finally, to the development a fully integrated preliminary design that satisfies all requirements. Topics addressed include preliminary performance studies, ship synthesis models; hull, machinery, combat systems, and systems engineering analyses, trade-off studies, design integration; and notes on the design of specific ship types, including high-performance ships. The course is of value to engineers new to the field in ship design or already working in the field but not familiar with the early-stage design process.

Course 3: General Arrangements
Instructor: H. David Kaysen
The SNAME General Arrangements course is a systems engineering approach to ship arrangements and a general summation of current trends in ship design. The course spans activities from planning and preliminary design to detail design and construction. While many types of military, scientific and commercial ship types will be addressed, the course is biased toward naval surface combatant design.

Course 4: An Introduction to Parametric Tools for Rapid Small Craft Design Solutions
Instructor: Jay Jeffries
This course will introduce participants to the approach of using specific software packages in combination to rapidly investigate early design options so as to arrive at a suitable concept, ready for design execution using parametric techniques. Workshop participants are encouraged to bring a PC laptop so that hands-on experience is gained with several software packages.
