This paper reviews the practical and theoretical issues associated with designing maritime technology. It follows the implementation of the Human Centred Design (HCD) component of the HCD and SQA Guideline that was developed under the auspices of the IMO e-navigation initiative. First we describe the project, which focused on the development of a shared interface for pilots and tug masters. Next we describe the implementation of the HCD process. Finally we reflect on some of the challenges associated with the implementation of the process. Implications for the movement of ships in ports, and for maritime technology design are identified.
