Marine vessels are highly customizable solutions, designed to perform multiple missions in shifting environments for many years. The successful utilization of sensors and relevant data in vessel design requires forward thinking and consideration of stakeholders and current design processes. While heterogeneous sources of data are available from vessels such as speed, engine performance, orientation, and slamming forces, correlation to a particular design facet requires considerable effort and design experience to create a more comprehensive picture of the context. We provide a structured approach incorporating constraints for proper data acquisition collected from active (operational/real) vessel based upon post data processing through event-based information, to become a relevant approach for practical design problems. With this approach, incorporation of stakeholder and usage information facilitate an improved design process, providing traceability between the link of data streams and design decisions.
