	%X The aim of this paper is to present the optimization
methodology developed in the frame of a Coastal Transport
Information System. The system will be used for the effective design
of coastal transportation lines and incorporates subsystems that
implement models, tools and techniques that may support the design
of improved networks. The role of the optimization and decision
subsystem is to provide the user with better and optimal scenarios
that will best fulfill any constrains, goals or requirements posed. The
complexity of the problem and the large number of parameters and
objectives involved led to the adoption of an evolutionary method
(Genetic Algorithms). The problem model and the subsystem
structure are presented in detail, and, its support for simulation is also
discussed.
