onfiguration-driven ships distinct themselves from other ships as their ability to perform their function is strongly influenced by the layout of the vessel. Exploring the balance between the performance of the vessel and its functions is typically done during early stage ship design. However this is more complicated for configuration-driven ships as evaluating the performance also requires a layout. A previously developed concept exploration method using the TU Delft Packing approach is used, but requires extensions to enable concept exploration of configuration-driven ships. Because of the limited and uncertain design information during these early design stages and the complicated interrelations within the problem, a solution based on stochastic modelling is proposed. The paper concludes with a Poisson-based metric to evaluate the layout of configuration-driven ships.
