Part 2: Course Learning Objectives 机械工程网课代上
Upon successful completion of this course, students can:
- properly formulate an optimizationproblem
- automate the design evaluation process using modern CAE and process automationsoftware
- use traditional and modern mathematical search algorithms to findoptimized solutions
- apply modern optimization software to optimize engineering componentsand systems
- apply design of experiments approaches to calculate design sensitivities and to develop responsesurfaces
- account for variability and its effects on designquality 机械工程网课代上
You will meet the objectives listed above through a combination of the following activities in this course:
- Watching video lectures anddemonstrations
- Completing software tutorials and answering reflectivequestions
- Completing designprojects
- Completing homeworkassignments
- Reading prepared notes and blog postarticles
Part 3: Course Outline/Schedule
We will maintain a schedule in which weekly assignments are posted on Mondays and will be due on Monday of the following week (at midnight). Some exceptions to this rule are possible, but this will be the nominal schedule.
Occasionally, I will post mid-week notes or videos to clarify issues or to add new material. When this happens, I will also send an email to alert you that there is new material on D2L.
Warning: Do not wait until the due date to begin working on assignments. Expect uncertainties and/or technical difficulties. These take some time to resolve, especially in an on-line class. 机械工程网课代上
The assignments are placed in a very particular order on D2L. Please do all assignments in the order in which they appear. This is very important.
All assignments are to be submitted via the Assignment Folder (formerly called a Dropbox) provided below that assignment. The labeling should be clear in each case. Start early in case you have any technical difficulties.
Contact me if you have any questions. And have fun!

Part 5: Course Policies
Inform Your Instructor of Any Accommodations Needed
Michigan State University is committed to providing equal opportunity for participation in all programs, services and activities. Requests for accommodations by persons with disabilities may be made by contacting the Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities at 517-884-RCPD or on the web at rcpd.msu.edu. Once your eligibility for an accommodation has been determined, you will be issued a Verified Individual Services Accommodation (“VISA”) form. Please present this form to me at the start of the term and/or two weeks prior to the accommodation date (test, project, etc.).

Commercialization of lecture notes and university-provided course materials is not permitted in this course.
Complete Assignments 机械工程网课代上
Assignments for this course will be submitted electronically through D2L unless otherwise instructed.
Spartan Code of Honor
As a Spartan, I will strive to uphold values of the highest ethical standard. I will practice honesty in my work, foster honesty in my peers, and take pride in knowing that honor is worth more than grades. I will carry these values beyond my time as a student at Michigan State University, continuing the endeavor to build personal integrity in all that I do.
Every submitted assignment (including homework assignments, lab reports, project reports) must contain the following signed statement near the top of the front page:
I have neither given nor received any unauthorized assistance on this assignment.
Assignments submitted without a signed pledge will not be graded.
On all assignments, looking at or making use of in any way an existing solution/answer/description from any source (e.g., another person, a solution manual, a solution found online, etc.) is not allowed. 机械工程网课代上
On homework assignments, having group discussions about concepts and providing small “hints” are allowable. On lab assignments, students may answer each other’s questions regarding how to use a software package. In all cases, final answers/data must be obtained independently, and answers to questions must be developed independently.
Project work must be done 100% independently.
