Multi-Objective Optimization in the Design Cycle
Design optimization seeks a design that minimizes the objective function while satisfying design constraints. Real-world design problems are usually characterized by the presence of many conflicting objectives. Therefore, it is natural to look at the engineering design problems as multi-objective optimization problems. For example, we may want to maximize range and payload mass while trying to minimize manufacturing costs for an airplane design.
