Abstract
The report describes the application of a computer-aided workspace layout program, called LOCATE, to a complex real world environment involving the evaluation of five ship's bridge configurations. The purpose of the study was to test the performance of the LOCATE procedure against the results of a previous evaluation from the same data base. The results of the LOCATE analysis are compared with the previous analysis, which used a variety of quantitative and qualitative techniques but lacked a structured method for integrating the results. LOCATE provided an assessment of the bridge designs which incorporated most aspects of the original analysis into a single quantitative process. The results of the LOCATE analysis agreed with the outcome of the original analysis so far as the overall recommendation is concerned. TRUNCATED
