Paper Abstract

The application of optimization algorithms is especially interesting in areas, where the design process needs several iterations, every single one costing time and money. This is particularly the case with the design of Microsystems. The disadvantage in practice is usually the construction of the quality function, with which the quality of the optimal design is measured. This holds especially true whenever more than one optimization goal is pursued, because every goal needs to be quantified as part of an overall quality function. Especially the user of the optimization system is often at a loss when asked to specify and quantify the single goals' contributions to the overall quality function. This paper demonstrates the problem using a radiometric sensor as an example and examines several computer assisted quality function approaches to transform the multi criteria optimization problem into a single goal problem.
