In this modern era, technological development is very rapid, and many changes occur in technology, especially in human life, which also applies in the maritime field. Technology is very important to facilitate activities in human life so that everything that exists can be completed quickly, easily, and effectively. Of course, the development of this technology is very much the ability to carry out important infrastructure to improve the quality of work and time efficiency. Technology is also very useful in the business field because, with the development of technology, people will more easily get to know each other. This study aims to find out how the ballast filling system works and find out the components in the tool. The mode used is the Research & Development (R&D). Based on the findings and results of the study, it was concluded that the ballast system is a tool used to increase the ship's stability and increase the G force to be easily controlled at the equilibrium point of the fast or dismantled ship structure. The design of water ballast system operation aids is carried out sequentially in each manufacturing process and has been adjusted to the problem formulation. This teaching aid is very useful as a learning medium so that the material is easier to understand because it is demonstrated using real teaching aids.
