• Eliminating Design Alternatives Based on Imprecise Information 

      Recuk, Stephen Joseph; Aughenbaugh, Jason Matthew; Bruns, Morgan Chase; Paredis, Chris (Georgia Institute of TechnologySociety for Automotive Engineers International, 2006)
      In this paper, the relationship between uncertainty and sets of alternatives in engineering design is investigated. In sequential decision making, each decision alternative actually consists of a set of design alternatives. ...
    • Multi-Attribute Utility Analysis in Set-Based Conceptual Design 

      Paredis, Chris; Malak, Richard J., Jr.; Aughenbaugh, Jason Matthew (Georgia Institute of TechnologyElsevier, 2007)
      During conceptual design, engineers deal with incomplete product descriptions called design concepts. Engineers must compare these concepts in order to move towards the more desirable designs. However, comparisons are ...
    • Why Are Intervals and Imprecision Important In Engineering Design? 

      Aughenbaugh, Jason Matthew; Paredis, Chris (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-02)
      It is valuable in engineering design to distinguish between two different types of uncertainty: inherent variability and imprecision. While variability is naturally random behavior in a physical process or property, ...
