The paper presents the principal steps in the definition of a practical design model for multi-criteria synthesis of complex thin-walled ship structures in concept and preliminary design. It elaborates the general requirements on the design procedure, balanced and applicable combinations of design models and a practical example of the basic analysis models/IT modules within the MAESTRO/OCTOPUS design support system. System identification from the multi-stakeholder perspectives of owner and society, and the formulation and solution to the dimensionally large-scale structural designs are presented as a step towards the practical implementation of multi-criteria decision-making in ship design practice since only a joint effort could lead to the satisfaction of all stakeholders in today's challenging ship-building industry. The practical structural design procedure/methodology, capable of embedding multiple design quality criteria, is demonstrated using a benchmark case study on the innovative RoPax ship.
