The development of a computer program for the optimization of dynamic systems subject to parameter and terminal state constraints is presented in this paper. The problem is handled by converting it to an equivalent algebraic optimization problem. The resulting problem is then solved by a modified version (D YS UMT) of the nonlinear programming method S UMT (Sequential Unconstrained Minimization Technique). The available program provides an efficient and convenient analysis tool to aid engineers in the modeling and designing of dynamic systems.
