This research tends to construct an auto-routing ship ventilation system that all environment restricted conditions are taken into consideration at the initial design stage of ship engine room ventilation arrangement, so we propose a design method that is able to build the round pipe components in the 3D environment where we refer the PDMS and its assisting PML programming language. Moreover, we apply the knowledge-based engineering (KBE) concept to the design flow and build up an extensible rule-based KBE system for shipyards. The system is able to deduce through the pipe arrangement process and solve some irrational planning on the basis of the rules in the knowledge base and display the design results on the PDMS platform as the 3D geometric models. The superiority of this research is to propose an auto-routing and auto-modeling form according to the specialty of PDMS, which is able to reduce the complexity of 3D geometric model design and the error rate due to the manual operation. In other words, the ventilation system is able to use the knowledge from the engineers to solve the design problems while planning the ventilation system in ship.
