Optimization methods have been considered in many articles, monographs, and handbooks. However, experts continue to experience difficulties in correctly stating optimization problems in engineering. These troubles typically emerge when trying to define the set of feasible solutions, i.e. the constraints imposed on the design variables, functional relationships, and criteria. The Parameter Space Investigation (PSI) method was developed specifically for the correct statement and solution of engineering optimization problems. It is implemented in the MOVI 1.0 software package, a tutorial version of which is included in this book. The PSI method and MOVI 1.0 software package have a wide range of applications. The PSI method can be successfully used for the statement and solution of the following multicriteria problems: design, identification, design with control, the optional development of prototypes, finite element models, and the decomposition and aggregation of large-scale systems.Audience: The PSI method will be of interest to researchers, graduate students, and engineers who work in engineering, mathematical modelling and industrial mathematics, and in computer and information science.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book deals with optimization in engineering, especially with the optimal design of various machines, mechanisms, structures, and devices, including cars, flight vehicules (sic), ships, machine tools, agricultural machines etc. It is also suitable for all who search for the optimal solution with respect to several performance criteria, develop software for the calculation of various systems on the basis of their optimization and deal with modeling and identification of various physical and engineering systems." (Paulo Mbunga, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1042, 2004)
