... proposes the first metamodel of its kind to tackle the HEB problem. This paper integrates the radial basis function with high dimensional model representation into a new model, RBF-HDMR. The developed RBF-HDMR model offers an explicit function expression, and can reveal (1) the contribution of each design...

...Yan Wang A semantic tolerance modeling scheme based on generalized intervals was recently proposed to allow for embedding more tolerancing intents in specifications with a combination of numerical intervals and logical quantifiers. By differentiating a priori and a posteriori tolerances, the logic...

The logistics of such an integrated parameter design scheme become difficult or impossible on processes that may occur in different geographical locations. In this paper we outline the use of mathematical models to conduct system-wide parameter design. We...

... robustness is often a computationally intensive process. Simplified approaches in existing robust design applications may lead to either over-conservative or infeasible design solutions. In this paper, several feasibility-modeling techniques for robust optimization are examined. These methods are classified...
