2001_NSF Some Advances in Design Representation

A design representation has been developed that derives the feasible decision set from defined specifications and linear performance functions. This representation allows the design team to rationally choose a design concept and dynamically improve the design. Several applications of the representation are reviewed. Current research utilizing the representation is exploding in diverse directions: 1) developing improved Simplex-like algorithms for efficient feasibility analysis, 2) extending the representation to non-linear systems, 3) modeling of uncertainty and flexibility during development, and 4) incorporating preference functions for design optimization.
