Ontology for Optimization

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: Design Optimization

Research team: Nicholas Polys

The "optimization ontology" addresses many deficiencies in the engineering design optimization community, including, but not limited to, knowledge organization, storage, and sharing. The formal ontology will standardize optimization terminology, identify optimization methods, assist in interoperability between programs, as well as capture abstract engineering knowledge.Manufacturing companies will benefit from the knowledge capturing and sharing techniques possessed by the optimization ontology.
