As part of a strategy for obtaining preliminary design specifications from the House of Quality, genetic algorithms are used to generate and optimize preliminary design specifications for an automotive case study. This paper describes the House of Quality for an automotive case study. In addition, the genetic algorithm chosen, the genetic coding, the methods used for mutation and reproduction, and the fitness and penalty functions are described. Methods for determining convergence are examined. Finally, test results show that the genetic algorithm produces reasonable preliminary design specifications.
