Decision-making and optimization in aircraft design
MetadataShow full item record
The state of the art in aircraft design is surveyed with regard to the decision-making process. It is shown that the empirical approach to decision-making as it is generally practiced in hardware design has inherent limitations. There is an increasing need to consider uncertainties and preferences explicitly. This leads to a new design outlook combining the experience of old-time designers with an analytical approach to complex problems. An outline is given for the development of practice-oriented text material as a most essential step toward preparing engineers for new tasks in design and decision-making. (Author)
