Classifying and Comparing Design Optimization Problems

Research in product design optimization has developed and demonstrated a variety of modeling techniques and solution methods, including multidisciplinary design optimization. As new techniques migrate to the industrial world engineers are faced with much more complex problems often extending beyond their realm of knowledge. A novel classification scheme is proposed and demonstrated to offer engineers a method of organizing and searching for relevant example problems to assist in the production of their own optimization problem. To explore the tradeoff between information requirements and solution quality, computational experiments are conducted on two design problems, a bathroom scale and a universal electric motor…
