Título: Using Self-Organizing Maps as a Decision-Making Tool for Multiobjective Design in Engineering
Autores: Campelo, Felipe; Guimarães, Frederico G.; Ramirez, Jaime R.
Resumo: This paper discusses the use of self-organizing maps (SOM) for decision-making in multiobjective design problems. Estimates of the Pareto-optimal solutions for a given problem are mapped onto a two-dimensional grid, where the distance between solutions is a measure of their similarity in the parameter space. By comparing the clustered points and the color grade of those points in the maps, the designer is able to visualize the similarity of the solutions in both the parameter and objective spaces, hence identifying redundant points. With the use of this technique, one is able to work with clusters of solutions instead of individual points, which can simplify the decision-making step.
