Abstract

Information overload has become a notable problem in many multidisciplinary design optimization analyses. When dealing with large design datasets, engineering designers can quickly become overwhelmed by the data, solutions, and their relationship. This paper presents a work-centered visual analytics framework to address such challenges. The proposed framework integrates user-centered interactive visualization and data-oriented computational algorithms into two analytical loops to help designers perform in-depth analysis on a trade space. An application system prototype, LIVE, has been developed to support multidisciplinary design optimization. The proposed system allows designers to analyze data, discover patterns, and formalize preferences in a uniform and integrated software platform by combining visualization and data mining. This approach is expected to help designers efficiently making sense of complicated multi-dimensional design data sets.
