Proceedings of the 14th Mechatronics Forum International Conference, Mechatronics 2014
Mechatronic design optimization is a complex process
characterized by an important number of requirements,
design variables, constraints and objectives. Therefore, it is very
important to decompose efficiently the system design problem
into a set of sub-problems to minimize the computational cost
while profiting from the spatial distribution of design tools,
working teams and expertise. However, coordinating design
optimization of a distributed design is a real issue to overcome.
In this study, a new efficient collaborative optimization approach
based on multi-agent paradigm is proposed for mechatronic
design optimization. The proposed method is applied to the
preliminary design case of an electric vehicle to demonstrate
its validity and effectiveness.
