Complex criteria for navigation equipment test table optimal design problem

V. M. Sineglazov, S. O. Dolgorukov


A multidisciplinary optimization is used for the navigation equipment test table design. The sixdiscipline level optimizations are driven by a top system level optimization which minimizes themanufacturing cost while at the same time coordinating the exchange of information and the interactionamong the discipline level optimizations
