Across all fields of Engineering Sciences, many design problems are multidisciplinary in nature. An optimal design can be achieved if all the disciplines are concurrently considered in an integrated approach. In MDO the whole is more than the sum of the parts, therefore the optimum of the integrated problem is superior to the design found by optimizing each discipline independently. However, including all disciplines simultaneously significantly increases the complexity of the problem. The optimal design of each discipline can be in itself a hard and computationally intensive optimization problem. In addition, the definition of the level of fidelity of the model for each discipline, the interexchange of variables of different nature (the output of one discipline can become the input to another) and the increased dimensionality, contribute to make the problem considerably harder. The largest number of applications is in the field of aerospace engineering, such as aircraft and spacecraft design in which aerodynamics, structural analysis, propulsion, control theory, and economics are integrated in a single optimization process. But many techniques have been developed and applied in a number of different fields, including automotive design, naval architecture, electronics, computers, and electricity distribution.
