Ezra's Round Table - Anton Kleywegt: Multidisciplinary Value Driven Design Optimization
From E. Cornelius
Multidisciplinary Design refers to design projects in which multiple teams, typically with different disciplines or expertise, design different subsystems of an overall system. Usually, coordination among the teams is important, and often is facilitated through the formulation of specifications, requirements, or constraints. There have been proposals to pursue coordination through the formulation of objectives for the subsystem teams, that is, to make design value driven. In this context, we propose and study an iterative scheme for guiding the design process toward an optimal design.
