Abstract In this paper, a novel method is proposed for the optimization, by finite element method (FEM) analysis, of the design variables of sheet-metal-forming processes. The method is useful when one or more non-controllable process parameters can be modelled as a random variable that introduces a degree of uncertainty into a process solution or, in other words, when the effect of any combination of design variables on the process response is disturbed by the non-controllable effect of a… Expand
