SolidWorks has an great optimization study under the design study tab that allows you input an objective, constraints, and variables and output an optimal design. However, I was wondering if there was an any material on the equations utilized and way of selecting such an optimal design. What I've been able to extract from the SolidWorks help is that it uses a Design of Experiments (DoE) method and then also mentions Box-Benkhen. I was wondering if there was any other literature to future describe how the optimization process is taking place with how and why the optimal design is selected. Thanks a lot!
