Model-based Optimization for Nonlinear, REstricted Production processes

MONREP, funded by the German minister for economics (BMWi), is a ZIM project (central innovation SME) is conducted during the time span 2014-2015. Project partners are Cologne University of Applied Sciences, and  divis GmbH, Dortmundaeroelasticity-300x264

 

The research area is focused on finding optimization techniques which can efficiently address real-world expensive optimization problems.

Application areas: optimization of wing profiles, crash simulations and weight optimization in automotive industries.
