Abstract

Real life engineering problems usually require the satisfaction of different, potentially conflicting criteria. Design optimization, on the other hand, based on the conventional Taguchi method cannot accommodate more than one response. However, by the use of the overall evaluation criterion approach, the method can be applied to multiple-criteria optimization problems. This paper presents the use of different utility function methods as well as a multiple attribute decision-making model in the multiple-criteria optimization of a cold heading process. Different aspects of each method are discussed and compared.
