Multi-Attribute Utility Analysis in Set-Based Conceptual Design
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 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 ...
Eliminating Design Alternatives Based on Imprecise Information
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 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. ...
Why Are Intervals and Imprecision Important In Engineering Design?
(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, ...
