Abstract

Modern engineering design problems are large, complex, and involve multiple levels of decision-making. To find the best design, the decision-maker is often required to analyze hundreds or thousands of combinations of design variables and attributes. In this paper, we investigate the use of multi-dimensional data visualization tools to support decision-making in a value-based environment. A satellite design example is used to demonstrate how existing multi-dimensional data visualization tools can facilitate the decomposition of a system-level objective function, and enable greater understanding during preliminary design.
