The basic design stage of ship constitutes an important base from which to develop the basic ship characteristics to be used as goals in following design stages. To determine ship design parameters that can satisfy various requirements needs to often query and calculation in the design process.The design information of the basic design will be used as a basis for following design stages, and design information can be compiled into an outline specification. To develop a design resource integrated framework output directly an outline specification which provide input information for the following design stages. First of all, the method manages the design information through a document-based concept which turns the original documents into the XML format and compiles lots of rules for basic design process. Second, the establishment of product data ontology, knowledge ontology, documents ontology and design flow ontology was to enhance the flexibility, extension and relation of the entities between different ontology. The conception of linking design knowledge base and inference engine turns out to combine the ship design information and founded design resource integrated framework by the research team. At last, the outline specification generating integration work through inference method attempts to reduce the double work of design and modeling while starting a new project.
