Análisis de requerimientos mediante la aplicación de AHP como base para el desarrollo del diseño conceptual de un buque tipo LCU

  • Luis E. Araníbar
  • Rafael L. Callamanda


This article summarizes the study of the requirements and necessities which are taken into consideration in the development of the conceptual design of a Landing Craft Utility (LCU), in which the AHP hierarchic analysis methodology was used, in order to qualify and classify the requested by the Colombian Navy (ARC), which will be the user of the ship. This way, it was possible to establish the importance which each of the necessities exposed has for the shipbuilder, in order to include them directly in the design process.
