2002 Annual Meeting of the North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society Proceedings. NAFIPS-FLINT 2002 (Cat. No. 02TH8622)  
When dealing with many-criteria decision making and many-objectives optimization problems the concepts of Pareto optimality and Pareto-dominance are inefficient in modelling and simulating human decision  ...  Different fuzzy-based definitions of optimality and dominated solution are introduced and tested on analytical test cases in order to show their validity and closeness to human decision making.  ...  For the convenience of the reader we recall here the well known definition of Pareto-dominance (definition II.3) and Pareto optimum (definition II.4) in a multi-criteria (M criteria) decision making problem  ...

Present-day Problems and Methods of Optimization in Mechatronics

Wojciech Tarnowski
2017 Acta Mechanica et Automatica  
It is justified that design is an inverse problem, and the optimization is a paradigm. Classes of design problems are proposed and typical obstacles are recognized.  ...  Then a set of non-standard approaches and methods are presented and discussed, illustrated by examples: a fuzzy description, a constraint-based iterative optimization, AHP ranking method and a few MADM  ...  There are numerous constraints, many are nonlinear, some are fuzzy. Usually there are a few well defined but conflicted criteria of optimality. Some may be only estimated (like a cost).  ...
