The paper presents a knowledge-based engineering (KBE) approach for ship node components design. In the ship design process, many design tasks need design experiences to support. However, a ship design process is a complicated process with many simultaneously repetitive and time-consuming activities. In this research, the method combines KBE with Tribon system's built-in development language tools of Vitesse, captures and applies design knowledge for achieving standard components intelligent design modeling. A case study and industry implementation illustrate the feasibility of the proposed methodology. The KBE technique can provide not only proper references, suggests and supports but also knowledge integrated in the ship structure design. Especially, these rules related to the design can avoid lots of design mistakes. During the ship design stage, getting more precise and better designs will not only reduce the time of rework and wasting resources but also shorten the construction time, improve quality and profit.
