The Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) tool in modeFRONTIER® provides engineers with an effective framework to operate an informed and successful final choice among the optimal design candidates.
When design problems reach a certain complexity level, a by-eye classification of the options becomes unfeasible. If many competing objectives apply, modeFRONTIER® empower users to automate the ranking of alternatives when the intuition alone cannot hint at a rational order.
Designers can opt for one of five methods to add objective criteria and support the decision making process. The MCDM algorithms and the Slider feature streamline what if analysis by providing runtime a ranking of design also when importance of attributes is not made explicit or the probability associated with alternatives cannot be calculated by the decision maker.
