Product design is one of the most important sectors influencing global sustainability, as almost all the products consumed by people are outputs of the product development process. In particular, early design decisions can have a very significant impact on sustainability. These decisions not only relate to material and manufacturing choices but have a(More)
Analytical target cascading (ATC) is a methodology for hierarchical multilevel system design optimization. In previous work, the deterministic ATC formulation was extended to account for random variables represented by expected values to be matched among subproblems and thus ensure design consistency. In this work, the probabilistic formulation is augmented(More)
Analytical target cascading (ATC) is a hierarchical multilevel multidisciplinary design methodology. In ATC, top level design targets (i.e., specifications) are propagated to lower level design problems in a consistent and efficient manner. In this article, a modified Lagrangian dual formulation and coordination for ATC are developed to enhance a(More)
(2012): Addressing supply-side risk in uncertain power markets: stochastic Nash models, scalable algorithms and error analysis, Optimization Methods and Software, This article may be used for research, teaching, and private study purposes. Any substantial or systematic reproduction, redistribution, reselling, loan, sub-licensing, systematic supply, or(More)
This paper addresses two important fundamental areas in product family formulation that have recently begun to receive great attention. First is the incorporation of market demand that we address through a data mining approach where realistic customer preference data are translated into performance design targets. Second is product architecture(More)
Enterprise-level business decisions are linked with engineering product decisions by integrating enterprise utility optimization and engineering design optimization under a hierarchical, multilevel, decision-based design framework. The enterprise problem sets attribute targets, that is, specifications, for engineering product development, which then(More)
Environmental protection legislation, consumer interest in " green " products, a trend toward corporate responsibility and recognition of the potential profitability of salvaging operations, has resulted in increased interest in product take back. However, the cost effectiveness of product take-back operations is hampered by many factors, including the high(More)
The optimal design of hybrid power generation systems (HPGSs) can significantly improve the technical and economic performance of power supply. However, the discrete-time simulation with logical disjunctions involved in HPGS design usually leads to a nonsmooth optimization model, to which well-established techniques for smooth nonlin-ear optimization cannot(More)
