Abstract
    An innovative complexity metric is introduced that provides a way to compare similar or different ship types and sizes at the contract design stage. The goal is to provide the designer with this information throughout the design process so that an efficient design is obtained during the first design run. Application to and validation on real passenger ships indicate that there is a significant correlation between the error in an engineer's judgement of complexity and the cost assessment error. It follows that this tool could be used to improve knowledge of the ship's complexity at the contract design stage, and even to try to optimise the design if the complexity criteria are not fixed by the shipowners.
