The research and design methods employed during the development of large LNGCs, coupled with the shipowners' emphasis on performance at normal and extreme service conditions, are called as designing the vessel for service. When designing an LNGC from the keel up, or any ship, it is preferable to begin with an extensive dimension and parameter analysis in order to identify a range of suitable hullform characteristics. The first step in the designing for service process involves a thorough ship dimension and parameter analysis based on statistics from a large, well-developed database of calm water model test results, seakeeping model test results, full-scale trial results and calculations. Each dimension and parameter combination should be evaluated against the design criteria using a combination of experience, tools, and statistics. It is critical to avoid selecting a single length, beam, draft, cargo capacity and speed combination based on custom. Source
