Design Optimization Process of Complex Product Based on MDO


Article Preview

Complex products are integrated by many subsystems through complex couplings. It is fussy to do design optimization on complex product in traditional mode. In this paper, a new design optimization process is illustrated based MDO technology. First, the traditional design optimization process of complex product is analyzed. And then, the MDO techniques are introduced. Using the MDO techniques, we conclude a new design optimization process which can improve the efficiency and the steps of this process is illustrated.
