How to apply performance indices and penalty functions
This session builds on the previous ‘Understanding and applying performance indices’ session and demonstrates the different ways performance indices can be applied in the software (i.e. either as a combined property or as an index line on an X-Y chart) and reviews the benefits and limitations of each approach. The latter part of the session also introduces the concept of penalty functions and demonstrates how they can be applied in the software to identify optimal solutions for cases where there are two objectives (e.g. minimizing mass and cost).
