Nowadays, product development in the car industry heavily relies on numerical simulations. For example, it is used to explore the influence of design parameters on the weight, costs or functional properties of new car models. Car engineers spend a considerable amount of their time analyzing these influences by inspecting the arising simulations one at a(More)
One of the important tasks in Mechanical Engineering is to increase the safety of the vehicle and decrease its production costs. This task is typically solved by means of Multiob-jective Optimization, which formulates the problem as a mapping from the space of design variables to the space of target criteria and tries to find an optimal region in these(More)
The work presented in this paper is part of the cooperative research project AUTO–OPT carried out by twelve partners from the automotive industries. One major work package concerns the application of data mining methods in the area of automotive design. Suitable methods for data preparation and data analysis are developed. The objective of the work is the(More)
