The development and use of the FORTRAN program MARGO (Marine Reduction Gear Optimization) is described. MARGO performs design analysis, weight minimization, and a rudimentary form of noise minimization using the general purpose optimization program called ADS-1 (Automated Design Synthesis, Version 1). Numerous subroutines are presented which calculate the associated design variables for marine reduction gears. The entire program is self-documented and easily modified by the user. Examples are presented to demonstrate the utility of the program.
