Paper Abstract

With the proliferation of digital computer capabilities the industry has developed many different ways to analyze optomechanical systems. These methods can be roughly grouped into three categories; 1) classical closed form analysis, 2) data base management analysis and 3) optical analog analysis. This paper describes the three groups, discusses their applications and compares their performance on the bases of cost, schedule and accuracy. The evaluations are based upon the author's experience on four recent projects which are used as benchmarks for the comparisons.
