Learning Objectives (I) The students will (1) learn how MSDO can support the product development process of complex, multidisciplinary engineered systems (2) learn how to rationalize and quantify a system architecture or product design problem by selecting appropriate objective functions, design variables, parameters and constraints (3) subdivide a complex system into smaller disciplinary models, manage their interfaces and reintegrate them into an overall system model Massachusetts Institute of Technology - Prof. de Weck and Prof. Willcox 3

Learning Objectives (II) (4) be able to use various optimization techniques such as sequential quadratic programming, simulated annealing or genetic algorithms and select the ones most suitable to the problem at hand (5) perform a critical evaluation and interpretation of simulation and optimization results, including sensitivity analysis and exploration of performance, cost and risk tradeoffs (6) be familiar with the basic concepts of multiobjective optimization, including the conditions for optimality and the computation of the pareto front Massachusetts Institute of Technology - Prof. de Weck and Prof. Willcox 4

Learning Objectives (III) (7) understand the concept of design for value and be familiar with ways to quantitatively assess the expected lifecycle cost of a new system or product (8) sharpen their presentation skills, acquire critical reasoning with respect to the validity and fidelity of their MSDO models and experience the advantages and challenges of teamwork Have you achieved these learning objectives ?
