In engineering problems, the concepts of design and optimization are two basic topics that are related to each other. The problem owner should prioritize the design or optimization on each other. In this regard, two different ways can be followed in engineering problems: firstly designing and then optimizing or using optimized parameters in the design process. In this study, the basic design parameters of a capesize bulk carrier for a specific purpose were created and exemplified on a model. The prototype development problem is handled as a multi-criteria optimization problem by creating appropriate and pareto optimal solutions. Parameter Space Investigation method was used to solve this optimization problem, and this method was applied in a program called Multi-criteria Optimization Vector Identification. As a result of the study, the design parameters of the capesize bulk carrier sample were created and the objective function criteria were obtained better than the prototype and the value in the literature.
