SHIPWEIGHT is a software tool for weight estimation during design work and weight tracking during construction. SHIPWEIGHT is a relational database program, complete with several prediction, interpolation / extrapolation, statistical and deviation analysis, etc. routines and algorithms, as well as full tabular and graphical output. SHIPWEIGHT generates GHS and NAPA weight distribution output macros.

The database structure of SHIPWEIGHT is comprehensive yet flexible, and supports SWBS and other specifications.

Introduced in 1998, SHIPWEIGHT is currently used at over 50 sites world-wide.
