Design tool reveals a product's many possible performance tradeoffs
Design tool reveals a product’s many possible performance tradeoffs
Users can quickly visualize designs that optimize multiple parameters at once. MIT researchers have developed a tool that makes it much easier and more efficient to explore the many compromises that come with designing new products. Designing any product - from complex car parts down to workaday objects such as wrenches and lamp stands - is a balancing act with conflicting performance tradeoffs.
