An information theoretic method for developing modular architectures using genetic algorithms

Abstract

Designing modular products can result in many benefits to both manufacturers and consumers. The development of modular products requires the identification of highly interactive groups of elements and arranging (i.e., clustering) them into modules. However, no rigorous clustering technique can be found in engineering design literature. This paper uses the… (More)
