This paper defines a new design methodology that incorporates appropriate, non-weight based manufacturing criteria during preliminary design to enable performance and manufacturing trade-offs. This methodology integrates a non-proprietary manufacturing tool, SEER-MFG, with design codes written in MATLAB into a multi-disciplinary environment using ModelCenter. Surrogates are then used for multi-attribute decisions.
