Advanced manufacturing techniques, such as automated fiber placement and additive manufacturing enables the fabrication of fiber-reinforced polymer composite components with customized material and structural configurations. In order to take advantage of this customizability, the design process for fiber-reinforced polymer composite components needs to be improved. Machine learning methods have been identified as potential techniques capable of handling the complexity of the design problem. In
