In order to achieve a robust design, it is not sufficient to perform a simple optimization:

  • Optimization often leads to reduced safety margins.
  • The optimized design may have other critical parameters than the inital design.
  • A 'reliable' optimum may be different than a deterministic one.

The proposed solution is a combination of optimization and reliability analysis.
