title Optimal Configuration Design: an Integrated Approach Using Grammars
source Journal of Mechanical Design 120, no. 1: 2-9
summary A computational approach to design that integrates conceptual design, configuration design, and component selection tasks overcomes some of the barriers to successful design automation. FFREADA is an implementation of a general design generation and optimization algorithm featuring hierarchical ordering of grammar based-design generation processes at different levels of abstraction. FFREADA is used to generate near-optimal hand-held power drill trains in a space which exceeding 200 million designs that are not limited to any particular functional architecture or component configuration. Drill power train designs within 1 percent of the optimal solution are found in minutes by sampling 302,000 design states on average. Optimal configurations are found for drills with three different torque requirements.
