... of uncertainty statistics in the optimization process. Specifically, this work presents the new framework in both a nonlinear programming (NLP) and directed search (DS) optimization setting. The authors have found that the benefits of treating uncertainty during the parametric design optimization process...

... product families from the optimization standpoint. The CP 3 model yields a mixed integer nonlinear programming problem, which is carefully reformulated to allow for the application of continuous optimization using a novel Platform Segregating Mapping Function (PSMF). The PSMF can be employed using any...
