... under uncertainty with a priori sets of attribute tradeoff values. Alternatively, this paper presents a more rigorous preference-based design metric using concepts from utility theory to accurately capture designer’s intent and preferences. The use of this design metric as the robust optimal design...

... Abstract Multiattribute utility theory is commonly used to define and represent the decision-maker’s preferences under conditions of uncertainty and risk. A major issue in implementing this approach deals with the identification and generation of appropriate utility functions, especially in an...
