Set-Based Design Method Reflecting the Different Designers’ Intentions

By M. Inoue and H. Ishikawa


The previous series of the study have proposed a preference set-based design (PSD) method that enables the flexible and robust design under various sources of uncertainties. In contrast to the traditional design method, this method generates a ranged set of design solutions that satisfy sets of performance requirements. In this study, a system based on PSD is implemented by combination of 3D-CAD and CAE, and the system is applied to a real industrial design problem, i.e., automotive front-side frame. This paper, also, discusses the applicability of the system for obtaining the multi-objective satisfactory design solutions reflecting the different designers’ intentions.Organised by: Cranfield UniversityMori Seiki – The Machine Tool Compan
