In multi-objective engineering optimization, it is very rare that there exists a unique ideal solution that covers every aspect of the problem. Thus, it is very useful for the decision maker to have multiple options prior to the selection of the best solution. In this work, a novel evolutionary normal boundary intersection (ENBI) method is introduced to identify optimal solutions to the green sand mould system problem. The ENBI method provides a uniform spread of the Pareto frontier in which… Expand
