Traditional mixed integer non-linear programming methods use the open equation system. For global optimization and black box models, probabilistic methods like simulated annealing, genetic algorithm, and colony optimization can be used. More details have been provided by Diwekar (2008). Level 5 is multi-objective optimization. It is well known that mathematics cannot isolate a unique optimum when there are multiple competing objectives. Mathematics can, at most, aid designers in eliminating design alternatives dominated by others, leaving a number of alternatives called the Pareto set.
There are two types of generating methods available for this, the weighting method and the constraint method. In the weighting method, a single objective is formed by weighting various objective functions and the optimization problem is solved using sets of different weights to obtain the Pareto surface. In the constraint method, the basic strategy is also to transform the multi-objective optimization problem into a series of single objective optimization problems. , Zl) while each of the others (Zi, i 5 1, .
