HS1710: Simple Optimization Study
Learn how to optimize a simple function defined using a Templex template.
The base input template defines two input variables, DV1 and DV2, labeled X and Y, respectively. The objective of the optimization is to minimize X + Y with the constraint 1/X + 1/Y – 2 < 0.
Run Optimization

Add an Optimization.
 In the Explorer, rightclick and select Add from the context menu.
 In the Add dialog, select Optimization.
 For Definition from, select Setup and click OK.
 Go to the step.
 Click the Objectives/Constraints  Goals tab.

Add an objective.
 Click Add Goal.
 In the Apply On column, select Response 1 (r_1).
 In the Type column, select Minimize.

Add a constraint.
 Click Add Goal.
 In the Apply On column, select Response 2 (r_2).
 In the Type column, select Constraint.
 In column 1, select <= (less than or equal to).
 In column 2, enter 0.0.
 Go to the step.

In the work area, set the Mode to Adaptive
Response Surface Method (ARSM).
Note: Only the methods that are valid for the problem formulation are enabled.
 Click Apply.
 Go to the step.
 Click Evaluate Tasks.
 Optional: Click the different tabs in the Evaluate step to monitor the progress of the Optimization.

After the optimization has finished, review the optimization history
first.
Post Process Results
In the PostProcessing step of an Optimization approach, you can access additional tools to review the results. Use the Integrity, Distribution, and Scatter tabs to compare and analyze designs.
 Go to the step.

Click the Integrity tab to analyze statistics of the
optimization study.
